About this Item

FIRST EDITION. Original cloth. Ex-library. Very Good. 'Lóránd Eötvös is also known by the German version of Lóránd, namely Roland. Had he only published in Hungarian, Eötvös would have achieved far less in the way of an international reputation so he published his most important results in German as well as Hungarian. To international scientists, therefore, he is known by the name which appeared on these German papers, namely Roland, Baron Eötvös. His full title is, however, far more grand: in Hungarian Vásárosnaményi Báro Eötvös Lóránd; in English Roland, Baron Eötvös of Vásárosnaményi. Looking at a present day map of Hungary, Vásárosnaményi is close to its eastern border with Ukraine' (MacTutor History of Mathematics Web site). 'After 1886 practically all of Eötvös’s scientific papers concentrated on his lifework: gravitation. He was interested in this subject on and off before then, and there is some evidence of a gradually awakening interest in earlier papers and speeches. The exact year when his interest swung from phenomena involving van der Waals forces to the weakest known forces in the universe cannot be ascertained. A partial motivation may have been a request by the Természettudományi Tarsulat (Hungarian Society for Natural Sciences) in 1881 for the determination of the gravitational acceleration in different parts of Hungary' (please ask for online source).
