Is there a modern equivalent to the Landau & Lifshitz lecture series in theoretical physics? I know the 10 volume series by Landau & Lifshitz is still relevant and very useful. But is there a more modern version that serves a similar purpose in providing the so called theoretical minimum for theoreticians?

  • $\begingroup$ There is the German equivalent of LL, written in the 1980s, the Greiner series (all books translated from DE to EN). These are enough to serve as university physics eduation material. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Also, does it cover some of the more modern developments? I believe with the advent of more powerful personal computers, many scalable numerical methods have been developed and are an essential part of basic graduate-level education in physics. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Spoon feeding is not my cup of tea. Go on Amazon, search by "Greiner Quantum Mechanics", then discover the whole series. Numerical methods have their own books. Greiner, as L&L only provide the standard theory. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ This question (v3) seems too broad for a useful res. recom. q. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm... G&M is known for index-happy misconceptions, quite orthogonal to the spirit of L&L... but I'd be reluctant to get into proper deconstruction here... $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 8, 2020 at 15:17
