Abstract: Lev Davidovich Landau was arguably one of the greatest and most versatilephysicists. His work spans a very wide range and has had a considerable impacton all areas of physics including condensed matter physics, plasma, high energyand particle physics, fluid dynamics, astrophysics, gravitation, elasticity,etc. Along with his former fellow student, E Lifshitz, he wrote the set of adozen volumes, the magnificent world-renowned Course of Theoretical Physicswhich covered topics ranging from mechanics, classical theory of fields,quantum mechanics, electrodynamics of continuous media, fluid dynamics, kinetictheory, theory of elasticity, statistical physics and more.
