About this book


Friends and colleagues of Engelbert Schucking came together in a symposium on the 12th and 13th of December 1996 at New York University to celebrate and express to him their respect, admiration, and affection. They came to celebrate his scientific and scholarly achievements, the inspirational quality of his teaching, his graciousness as a colleague, his thoughtful guidance of graduate students, his service to the department, the university and the physics community at large-and, not least, his open, courteous, easy accessibility to anyone needing his counselor expertise. The announcement was A SYMPOSIUM In Honor of PROF. ENGELBERT SCHUCKING Physics Department-New York University On December 12th and 13th there will be a Symposium to honor Professor Engel­ bert Schucking for his service to the University, the Department, and the Physics Community. The December 12th session will run from 1 to 6 PM followed by a reception. The following morning the session will run from 9 AM to 1 PM. Atten­ dance (including the reception) is open to all friends and colleagues of Professor Schucking and anyone interested in General Relativity.
