**1910-1995**
Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was one of the most

brilliant physicists of the

20th Century. Most known as being a

pioneer in the area of combining

Astronomy and

Physics, and for

discovering the '

Chandrasekhar Limit'; the

upper limit of the

mass of a

white dwarf star. Won the

Nobel Prize for Physics in 1983. Also the author of many books:

In Order of Publishing:

*Introduction to the Study of Stellar Structure* - 1939 - Stellar Dynamics

*Principles of Stellar Dynamics* - 1942 - Stellar Dynamics

*Radiative Transfer* - 1950 - Radiative Transfer (

obviously)

*Hydrodynamic and Hydromagnetic Stability* - 1961 - Subject same as Title

*Ellipsoidal Figures of Equilibrium* - 1968 - Figures of Equilibrium (WAY beyond

me)

*The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes* - 1983 - Black Holes and Quantum Theory

Chandrasekhar is a very interesting and deep fellow. I recomend any of his books for anyone interested in these subjects,

*The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes* is very interesting but you have to know a lot of

math to understand it (it lost me very

quickly.)

*Introduction to the Study of Stellar Structure* is also good and much less mathematical, but still difficult to

read nonetheless...
