Summary

Ya. B. Zeldovich was certainly one of the greatest physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century. This volume presents reminiscences of this exemplary academician, providing biographical and historical insights from colleagues who knew him best. Zeldovich's achievements are outlined, including those in relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, the theory of combustion, and the Soviet atomic and hydrogen bomb projects. It contains incisive commentary on Soviet science and the impact that Zeldovich had on future generations, not only in the former USSR but throughout the international physics community. Zeldovich: Reminiscences is ideal for students of astrophysics and the history of science.
