Reissue of the second volume of the Levi Civita Amaldi
"This second volume of our lessons would have to complete the work. But, even here still has systematically observed the criterion to give up exclusive mathematical interest developments and mainly technical applications, the intention to highlight in their most fruitful aspects of the various chapters of rational mechanics has led us to devote the entire second volume Dynamics of systems with a finite number of degrees of freedom, referring to a third Mechanics of continuous systems. Indeed the proportions assumed by our discussion we were advised to divide the same second volume into two parts, of which now lincenziamo the first, while the other, which will include the Dynamics of solids, the canonical equations, the variational principles and impulses, already It is in press.
Tullio Levi Civita is graduated from the University of Padua, in 1898, only twenty-four, in Padua became owner of Pure mechanics professor, 20 years later, in 1918, he was appointed at the University of Rome, "La Sapienza "ordinary before top Analysis, then rational mechanics. In 1938 he was removed from office for racial discrimination of the fascist government because of his Jewish origin. He died isolated from the scientific world in his apartment in Rome, in 1941.I his studies on the absolute differential calculus, have been a key reference and the basis of the mathematics of general relativity theory Einstein.Gli was dedicated an asteroid: 12473 Levi -Civita.
Ugo Amaldi is graduated in Mathematics in Bologna twenty-three was appointed five years later, in 1903, professor of Algebra and Analytic Geometry at the University of Cagliari. He then moved to the University of Modena (1906-19), to that of Padua (1919-24) and finally to Rome, first at the Faculty of Architecture (1924-42) and later at the Academy of Sciences (1942-44) .Lavorò mainly on the theory of continuous transformation groups, he appreciated essayist, member of the Accademia dei Lincei and other scientific institutions, was considered a person of calm and impartial character, sincere and not ostentatious religiosity.
