Eringen, Ahmed Cemal
Ahmed Cemal Eringen (∗February 15th, 1921 in Kayseri, Turkey; †December 7th, 2009 in Littleton, Colorado, USA) was a scientist in the field of continuum mechanics, micropolar media, and mechano-electromagnetic theories. His scientific interests covered various branches of mechanics and theoretical physics. In his research, based on continuum theory, he leads the way to areas traditionally not touched by mechanics, namely, media with additional internal rotational degrees of freedom in their microstructure and electrodynamics, and hence contributed to its reunion with physics. Eringen’s life has been the subject of two biographical sketches the reader should consult for further information: Bég (2003) and Narasimhan (2003a).
Beginnings and Family
Ahmed Cemal Eringen was born in Kayseri (Turkey) as a Turkish citizen. He got married in 1949 and had four children, among them Meva, who is mentioned several times for her support in his works.
