Glimpses of cosmic menagerie through S. Chandrasekhar's eyes

Author: Gupta, Patrick Das

Keywords: Astrophysicists
Chandrasekhar, S. -- (Subrahmanyan), -- 1910-1995

Issue Date: 2011-07

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: This article provides an exposition to Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar's seminal contributions to wide ranging topics in astrophysics - from white dwarf mass limit to blackholes and gravitational waves, in the light of observational astronomy. Most of the results obtained by Chandrasekhar led to far reaching consequences in astrophysics, many of them experimentally validated.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
