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

By Isaak M. Khalatnikov

The booklet is an increased autobiography of the well-known 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 undertaking. After the loss of life 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 clinical university and performed a well-known function within the improvement of theoretical physics. So, it is a tale approximately how the institute used to be created, the way it labored, and concerning the lifetime of the physicists within the "golden age" of the Soviet technological know-how. A separate bankruptcy is dedicated to today´s lifetime of the institute and the younger new release of physicists operating now in science.

It is an traditionally attention-grabbing e-book at the improvement of Soviet and Russian technology and offers the historical past of the Soviet nuclear bomb application within the chilly battle age. In struggle instances, Khalatnikov used to be a primary of the army employees of nuclear learn. He writes concerning the inner stipulations of Soviet society, the way in which of working of the Soviet gurus and methods for scientists to engage with them. It supplies many attention-grabbing insights into the advance of superconductivity and superfluidity. The booklet is written by way of the main skilled and most sensible proficient individual one of the few residing Russian scientists within the setting of Landau. Many tales of the ebook have been by no means released prior to and regarded as "top secret".
