Discourse on Fourier series by
Cornelius Lanczos(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published in 1966, this wellwritten and stillcited text covers Fourier analysis, a foundation of science and engineering. Many modern textbooks are filled with specialized terms and equations that may be confusing, but this book uses a friendly, conversational tone to clarify the material and engage the reader. The author meticulously develops the topic and uses 161 problems integrated into the text to walk the student down the simplest path to a solution

Einstein and the special theory of relativity Einstein's general theory of relativity. by
L O'Raifeartaigh(
Visual
)
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Side 1 discusses the Theory of Special Relativity as constructed by Einstein  a synthesis of the laws of electromagnetism and the laws of mechanics. The Theory of Special Relativity leads to new ideas about space and time. Special Relativity implies that time is no longer an absolute quantity. Special Relativity has been verified experimentally to an exceptionally high degree of accuracy. Not only did it radically alter accepted notions of space and time, but it led to the discovery that matter and energy are interconvertible.  Side 2 discusses Einstein's General theory of Relativity. As the only serious critic of his Special Theory, Einstein felt it might be possible to construct a theory which satisfied what he termed the 'Principle of General Relativity'. There was no obvious reason for Einstein to invent General Relativity, however, the theory is now widely accepted.

The intrinsic nature of things : the life and science of Cornelius Lanczos by
Barbara Gellai(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lanczos made important contributions to several areas of mathematics and mathematical physics. His first major contribution was an exact solution of the Einstein field equations for gravity (in general relativity). He worked out the Fast Fourier Transform, but since there were no machines on which to run it, this accomplishment would be forgotten for 25 years. Once he had access to computers, Lanczos independently rediscovered what is now known as the singular value decomposition, a fundamental tool in numerical methods. Other significant contributions included an important discovery about the Weyl tensor, which is now known as the Lanczos potential, and an important contribution on algorithms for finding eigenvalues of large matrices.
