About this Item

In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series A, Volume 242, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, 1949-1950. London & New York:: Published for the Royal Society by the Cambridge University Press, 1950., 1950. 296 x 237 mm. 4to. Pages 557-577. [Entire volume: vii, 609 pp.] 3 figs. Blind-stamped maroon cloth, gilt spine; rubbed. Very good. FIRST EDITION. "The present paper completes the theory of axisymmetric tensors and forms to the extent that is needed for the development of a theory of turbulence in which symmetry about a certain preferred direction is assumed to exist. Particular attention is given to the manner in which tensors, solenoidal in one or more indices, can be derived, uniquely, in a gauge-invariant way, as the curl of a suitably defined skew tensor." From the preface. Subrhmanyan Chandrasekhar was an Indian-American astrophysicist who went to Cambridge University in 1930 on a Government of India Scholarship. He received his Ph.D. in 1933 and became a fellow of Trinity College for four years. In 1937 Chandrasekhar became a research associate at the University of Chicago, where he became Hull Distinguished Service Professor of Astrophysics in 1947. In 1983 Chandrasekhar was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics "for his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars." Wasson, Nobel Prize winners, pp. 199-201. Bookseller Inventory # S4133
