Abraham Haskel Taub : biography

February 1, 1911 - August 9, 1999

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. In a 1948 paper dealing with relativistic shock waves, he introduced a relativistic generalization of the Rankine-Hugoniot jump conditions across a shock, which is now known as the "Taub Adiabat." He also introduced the Taub–NUT space in general relativity.

Taub earned his doctorate at Princeton University in 1935, under the direction of the prominent relativist Howard Percy Robertson. At Princeton, Taub was also influenced by Oswald Veblen.
