30 Years of the Landau Institute
The Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics was created in 1965 by a group of LD Landau's pupils. Very soon, it was widely recognised as one of the world's leading centres in theoretical physics. According to Science Magazine, the Institute once had the highest citation index among all the scientific organisations in the former Soviet Union. This collection of the best papers of the Institute reflects the development of the many directions in the exact sciences during the last 30 years. You can find the original formulations of well-known notions in condensed matter theory, quantum field theory, mathematical physics and astrophysics, which were introduced by members of the Landau Institute.
The following are some of the achievements described in this book: monopoles (A Polyakov), instantons (A Belavin et al.), weak crystallisation (S Brazovskii), spin superfluidity (I Fomin), finite band potentials (S Novikov) and paraconductivity (A Larkin, L Aslamasov).
