Wikipedia (website), viewed May 3, 2022: Evgeny Lifshitz (Evgeny Mikhailovich Lifshitz ForMemRS (Russian: Евге́ний Миха́йлович Ли́фшиц; February 21, 1915, Kharkiv, Russian Empire - October 29, 1985, Moscow, Russian SFSR) was a leading Soviet physicist and brother of the physicist Ilya Lifshitz. Born into a Ukrainian Jewish family in Kharkov, Kharkov Governorate, Russian Empire (now Kharkiv, Ukraine). Lifshitz is well known in the field of general relativity for coauthoring the BKL conjecture concerning the nature of a generic curvature singularity. As of 2006, this is widely regarded as one of the most important open problems in the subject of classical gravitation. With Lev Landau, Lifshitz co-authored Course of Theoretical Physics, an ambitious series of physics textbooks, in which the two aimed to provide a graduate-level introduction to the entire field of physics. These books are still considered invaluable and continue to be widely used.)
Mathshistory (website), viewed May 3, 2022: Evgenii Mikhailovich Lifshitz (Born: 21 February 1915, Kharkov, Ukraine. Died: 29 October 1985, Moscow, USSR. Evgeny Lifshitz was a leading Ukranian physicist, best known for the textbook he wrote with Lev Landau. He learnt English and German as foreign languages, but next to Russian he preferred to speak English. Evgenii Mikhailovich completed his secondary school studies in 1929 when he was only fourteen years old. He then studied for two years at the chemical college before beginning his university studies in 1931 in the physics and mechanics faculty of Kharkov Mechanics and Machine Building Institute. He graduated in 1933, having completed the examinations and had a diploma thesis accepted. In 1933 he began working as a graduate student at the Ukrainian Physicotechnical Institute having been accepted as one of Lev Landau's first Ph.D. students. He completed the course and took the Ph.D. examination in 1934. After the award of his Ph.D., Lifshitz worked at the Institute until 1938 as a senior research scientist. In 1935 he began work on his joint project with Landau, the ten volume Course of Theoretical Physics. In September 1938 he returned to Kharkov where he taught at the Chemical Technology Institute until June 1939. From September 1939 he worked entirely at the Academy of Sciences Institute of Physical Problems in Moscow. For around thirty years he was been the deputy chief editor of Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics.)
