From the Atomic Bomb to the Landau Institute: Autobiography. by Isaak M. Khalatnikov

By Isaak M. Khalatnikov

The e-book is an accelerated autobiography of the recognized theoretical physicist Isaak Khalatnikov. He labored including L.D. Landau on the Institute for actual difficulties lead via P.L. Kapitza. he's the co-author of L.D. Landau in a few vital works. They labored jointly within the body of the so-called Nuclear Bomb venture. After the dying of L.D. Landau, I.M. Khalatnikov initiated the institution of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, named in honour of L.D. Landau, in the USSR Academy of Sciences. He headed this institute from the start as its Director. The institute inherited just about all traditions of the Landau medical tuition and performed a trendy function within the improvement of theoretical physics. So, this can be a tale approximately how the institute was once created, the way it labored, and concerning the lifetime of the physicists within the "golden age" of the Soviet technology. A separate bankruptcy is dedicated to today´s lifetime of the institute and the younger iteration of physicists operating now in science.

It is an traditionally fascinating booklet at the improvement of Soviet and Russian technology and provides the heritage of the Soviet nuclear bomb software within the chilly warfare age. In conflict instances, Khalatnikov used to be a first-rate of the army employees of nuclear study. He writes concerning the inner stipulations of Soviet society, the way in which of working of the Soviet specialists and methods for scientists to have interaction with them. It supplies many fascinating insights into the advance of superconductivity and superfluidity. The booklet is written through the main skilled and most sensible trained individual one of the few dwelling Russian scientists within the surroundings of Landau. Many tales of the booklet have been by no means released sooner than and regarded as "top secret".
