Definitions for "Abraham Haskel Taub"
Abraham Haskel Taub (February 1 1911–August 9 1999) was a distinguished American mathematician and physicist, well known for his important contributions to the early development of general relativity, as well as differential geometry and differential equations. He is perhaps best known for a 1948 paper dealing with relativistic shock waves, in which he introduced a relativistic generalization of the Rankine-Hugoniot jump conditions across a shock, which is now known as the "Taub Adiabat".
