This paper is a somewhat expanded version of the lecture given at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences on the occasion of the Conference to dedicate Warren Weaver Hall in March, Cited by: The theory of ellipsoidal harmonics, originated in the nineteenth century, could only be seriously applied with the kind of computational power available in recent years.

This, therefore, is the first book devoted to ellipsoidal harmonics. Topics are drawn from geometry, physics, biosciences and inverse by: Ellipsoidal Figures of Equilibrium.

Those SITIRO MINAGAWA figures correspond to Maclaurin's spheroids, or Jacobi's ellipsoids, for a rotating liquid-mass. Of course, those are not the sole possible figures: the analogue of the pear-shaped figure, torus-shaped figure, etc.

But we have an objection against the choice of an ellipsoidal bounding surface: the shape of the figures of equilibrium is not deduced by the field equations of the corresponding theory (Newtonian or General Relativistic) but it is imposed on : T.

Papakostas. The second condition of equilibrium is that there be no torque around any axis; the choice of axis is arbitrary and we will assume that its direction is perpendicular to the xy plane of rotation.

Lagrange in considered the possibility of a tri-axial ellipsoid being in equilibrium, but concluded that the two equatorial axes of the ellipsoid must be equal, leading back to the solution of Maclaurin spheroid.

But Jacobi realized that Lagrange 's demonstration is a sufficiency condition, but not necessary. Chandrasekhar, S., Ellipsoidal figures of equilibrium, Yale University Press, New Haven. The work of A.
