Most widely held works by S Chandrasekhar
The mathematical theory of black holes by S Chandrasekhar ( Book )
49 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hydrodynamic and hydromagnetic stability by S Chandrasekhar ( Book )
43 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lucid examination of the Rayleigh-Bernard problem; clear coverage of the theory of instabilities causing convection
Radiative transfer by S Chandrasekhar ( Book )
28 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book by a Nobel Laureate provides the foundation for analysis of stellar atmospheres, planetary illumination, and sky radiation. Radiation transfer has been investigated as a phenomenon of astrophysics, and it has attained wider interest because of similar problems in the theory of neutron diffusion. Suitable for students and professionals in physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, and atmospheric studies. 1950 edition

Fluid flows to black holes a tribute to S. Chandrasekhar on his birth centenary by D. J Saikia ( )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This unique book contains a biographical portrait, accounts of Chandrasekhar's role and impact on modern science, historical perspectives and personal reminiscences, several of which appeared in Physics Today, and reviews by leading experts in areas which Prof. Chandrasekhar pioneered. The reviews, which appeared in the Bulletin of the Astronomical Society of India, are either based on papers presented by scholars in the Chandrasekhar Centennial Symposium at the University of Chicago during 15-17 October 2010, or were additional reviews covering topics not represented at the conference by other distinguished astrophysicists. It provides a glimpse of some of the most exciting areas of modern astrophysics as a tribute to Prof Chandrasekhar on his birth centenary
Principles of stellar dynamics by S Chandrasekhar ( Book )
34 editions published between 1939 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ellipsoidal figures of equilibrium by S Chandrasekhar ( Book )
17 editions published between 1969 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classical investigations on the ellipsoidal figures of equilibrium of liquid masses are here enlarged by Chandrasekhar into a complete theory. The author develops and completes the basic ideas put forth in three fundamental papers by Dirichlet, Dedekind, and Riemann over a century ago, which have been all but ignored since that time. The various problems are solved by a method and a technique that are essentially elementary, and a number of common misconceptions and errors are corrected. After a historical introduction, the author goes on to discuss virial equations of the various orders and to describe his new method; potentials of homogeneous and heterogeneous ellipsoids (including theorems on a class of heterogeneous ellipsoids which enable the treatment of the subject without explicit use of ellipsoidal harmonics); Dirichlet's problem and Dedekind's theorem; Maclaurin spheroids; Jacobi and Dedekind ellipsoid; Riemann ellipsoids; Roche ellipsoids (Including Darwin ellipsoids)

From white dwarfs to black holes : the legacy of S. Chandrasekhar ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From White Dwarfs to Black Holes chronicles the extraordinarily productive scientific career of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, one of the twentieth century's most distinguished astrophysicists. Over the course of more than six decades of active research Chandrasekhar investigated a dizzying array of subjects, including stellar structure and dynamics, the theory of radiative transfer, hydrodynamic and hydromagnetic stability, the equilibrium and stability of ellipsoidal figures of equilibrium, the general theory of relativity and relativistic astrophysics, the mathematical theory of black holes, and the theory of colliding gravitational waves and non-radial perturbations of relativistic stars."--BOOK JACKET
