504    Includes bibliographical references. 
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.
