TitleMarcel Grossmann : For the Love of Mathematics
Author(s)Graf-Grossmann, Claudia
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXVIII, 263 p. 91 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteZurich, summer 1912. Albert Einstein has just returned from Prague to the city on the Limmat. He sends a plea for help to his former fellow student, the mathematician Marcel Grossmann (1878-1936), for he is in need of assistance with the mathematical calculations of his general theory of relativity. What then follows is one of the most fascinating chapters of science history, with far-reaching consequences for the lives of the two friends. Marcel Grossmann???s granddaughter paints here a picture of a fiery and many-talented scientist and patriot. She traces the influence of an entrepreneurial family during Germany???s rapid industrial expansion in the late 19th century. The family???s fluctuating fortunes take the story to the vibrant city of Budapest on the Danube; they enable readers to sense the pioneering spirit at Zurich???s young Polytechnic Institute (now ETH Zurich) ??? but also reflect the worries and hardships of the First World War and interwar years. The Foreword is written by Prof. Remo Ruffini, founder and president of the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics and the Marcel Grossmann Meetings. Last but not least, an extensive contribution by Dr. Tilman Sauer offers a scientific-historical appreciation of Marcel Grossmann???s enduring contributions

TitleLudwig Prandtl : A Life for Fluid Mechanics and Aeronautical Research
Author(s)Eckert, Michael
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXVI, 360 p. 52 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis is a comprehensive biography of Ludwig Prandtl (1875-1953), the father of modern aerodynamics. His name is associated most famously with the boundary layer concept, but also with several other topics in 20th century fluid mechanics, particularly turbulence (Prandtl's mixing length). Among his disciples are pioneers of modern fluid mechanics such as Heinrich Blasius, Theodore von K??rm??n and Walter Tollmien. Furthermore, Prandtl founded the Aerodynamische Versuchsanstalt (AVA) and the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Institut f??r Str??mungsforschung in G??ttingen, both of them seeds for the growth of fluid mechanics in Germany. Yet Prandtl was also a representative of aeronautical research - from Imperial Germany via the Weimar Republic to the "Third Reich". Although not a party member, he assumed the role of a goodwill ambassador for Nazi Germany. This objective treatment of his career will be of interest to all scientists and historians wanting to learn more about Prandtl's influence and the early development of fluid- and aerodynamics
