A brilliant student, he had finished secondary school by the age lifsvhitz He enrolled in the University of Baku a year later, inand later transferred to the University of Leningrad, from which he graduated with a degree in physics. Landau did graduate work in physics at Leningrad’s Physiotechnical Institute, at Cambridge University in England, and at the Institute of Theoretical Physics in Denmark, where he met physicist Neils Bohr, whose work he greatly admired.
Considered to be the founder of a whole school of Soviet theoretical physicists, Landau was honored with numerous awards, including the Lenin Prize, the Max Planck Medal, the Fritz London Prize, and, most notably, the Nobel Prize for Physics, which honored his pioneering work in the field of low-temperature physics and condensed matter, particularly liquid helium.
Unfortunately, Landau’s wife and son had to accept the Nobel Prize for him; Landau had been seriously injured in a car crash several months earlier and never completely recovered.

He was unable to work again, and spent the remainder of his years, until his death inbattling health problems resulting from the accident. Landau’s most notable written work is his Course of Theoretical Physics, an eight-volume set of texts covering the complete range of theoretical physics. Like several other of Landau’s lifwchitz, it was written with Evgeny Lifshitz, a favorite student, because Landau himself strongly disliked writing.
