Chandrasekhar Centennial Symposium 2010 - Chicago   

The 100th anniversary of the birth of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar: Chandrasekhar Centennial Symposium 2010 - Chicago

October 19, 2010 was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. This symposium was an occasion for those who knew Chandra to commemorate his life and work, and for those who did not know him to experience firsthand some of the impact he had on 20th century science. International Planning Committee: Abhay Ashtekar, Naresh Dadhich, Valeria Ferrari, John Friedman, Giuseppe Mussardo, Jayant Narlikar, Roger Penrose, Saul Teukolsky, Robert Wald (co-chair) and Kameshwar C. Wali (co-chair). Funding for the Symposium was provided by the National Science Foundation and by the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Enrico Fermi Institute, the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, and the Department of Physics of the University of Chicago.
