Wikipedia, viewed May 10, 2022: Lev Landau (Lev Davidovich Landau (Russian: Лев Дави́дович Ланда́у; 22 January 1908 - 1 April 1968) was a Soviet physicist who made fundamental contributions to many areas of theoretical physics. Landau was born on 22 January 1908 to Jewish parents in Baku, Azerbaijan, in what was then the Russian Empire. In 1922, at age 14, he matriculated at the Baku State University, studying in two departments simultaneously: the Departments of Physics and Mathematics, and the Department of Chemistry. Subsequently, he ceased studying chemistry, but remained interested in the field throughout his life. In 1924, he moved to the main centre of Soviet physics at the time: the Physics Department of Leningrad State University, where he dedicated himself to the study of theoretical physics, graduating in 1927. Landau subsequently enrolled for post-graduate studies at the Leningrad Physico-Technical Institute where he eventually received a doctorate in Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 1934. Landau got his first chance to travel abroad during the period 1929-1931, on a Soviet government-People's Commissariat for Education-travelling fellowship supplemented by a Rockefeller Foundation fellowship. By that time he was fluent in German and French and could communicate in English. He later improved his English and learned Danish. Between 1932 and 1937, Landau headed the Department of Theoretical Physics at the National Scientific Center Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology, and he lectured at the University of Kharkov and the Kharkov Polytechnical Institute. From 1937 until 1962, Landau was the head of the Theoretical Division at the Institute for Physical Problems. Landau died on 1 April 1968, aged 60, from complications of the injuries sustained in the car accident he was involved in six years earlier. He was buried at the Novodevichy cemetery.)
