520 This is the first of six volumes collecting significant
papers of the distinguished astrophysicist and Nobel
laureate S. Chandrasekhar. His work is notable for its
breadth as well as for its brilliance; his practice has
been to change his focus from time to time to pursue new
areas of research. The result has been a prolific career
full of discoveries and insights, some of which are only
now being fully appreciated. Chandrasekhar has selected
papers that trace the development of his ideas and that
present aspects of his work not fully covered in the books
he has periodically published to summarize his research in
each area. Volume 1, "Stellar Structure and Stellar
Atmospheres," covers primarily the period 1930-40 and
includes early papers on the theory of white dwarfs. In
the Preface, Chandrasekhar explains the criteria for
selection and provides historical background. Each
subsequent volume will include a foreword by an authority
on the topics covered.
