Om Satyendra Nath Bose aAA" His Life
Satyendra Nath Bose became a legendary figure of science in the 20th century in India with his revolutionary discovery on the nature of radiation. Despite the association with Einstein, however, little is known about him outside of India. This book highlights the remarkable intellect and the extraordinary personality of Bose set against the backdrop of a rich Bengali cultural tradition and British-Indian politics. Unlike other books covering the significance of Bose's discovery, this book describes his diverse scientific contributions to India's scientific community by bringing together selected articles and addresses by Bose as well as contributions from some well-known scientists on the many-faceted life of Bose, thus making it a truly unique volume.Contents:Satyendra Nath Bose — His Life and Times (1894–1974) (K C Wali)Selected Scientific Papers:Early Papers — Classical PhysicsQuantum Mechanics and Quantum StatisticsThe Ionosphere — Mathematical PhysicsUnified Field TheoryLectures and Addresses:Science in EducationHigher Education and UsMan in the Scientific AgeThe Mother TongueThe Krishnan Memorial Lecture, 1971Education and the New AgeMiscellaneous Pieces:A Scientist's ApologiaThe Progress of Science in Ancient IndiaThe Early Phase of My Explorations in ScienceEinsteinIn the Company of Madame CurieArticles by Others:George SudarshanW A BlanpiedJ Stacheland other papersReadership: Graduate students, physicists, chemists and historians of science.
