Lev Landau

Birthdate: 22. January 1908
Date of death: 1. April 1968

Lev Davidovich Landau was a Soviet physicist who made fundamental contributions to many areas of theoretical physics.His accomplishments include the independent co-discovery of the density matrix method in quantum mechanics , the quantum mechanical theory of diamagnetism, the theory of superfluidity, the theory of second-order phase transitions, the Ginzburg–Landau theory of superconductivity, the theory of Fermi liquid, the explanation of Landau damping in plasma physics, the Landau pole in quantum electrodynamics, the two-component theory of neutrinos, and Landau's equations for S matrix singularities. He received the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physics for his development of a mathematical theory of superfluidity that accounts for the properties of liquid helium II at a temperature below 2.17 K .

Quotes Lev Landau

„It is important to do everything with passion, it embellishes life enormously.“

—  Lev Landau

Главное, делайте всё с увлечением, это страшно украшает жизнь.
in a letter to his niece Maya Bessarab, as quoted by her in [Lev Landau, biography, Moscovskiy Rabochiy (Moscow Worker), 1971]

„A method is more important than a discovery, since the right method will lead to new and even more important discoveries.“

—  Lev Landau
