In a memoir written in the s, Weinstock recalled how, after he received his PhD in physics from Stanford in , he worked for a time at Harvard's Radar Research Laboratory as part of the war effort. Describing himself then as an idealistic year-old, he came up with the idea that he could do more for humanity and humanity's problems as a working man than as a physicist, and so went to work for some months in as a seaman on two merchant ships.

Back in the United States, Weinstock responded to a call for qualified mathematics instructors at Stanford then, like most American colleges and universities, dealing with a major influx of new students supported by the GI Bill. He planned at the time to return to academia for only a short time. But, as it turned out, a long teaching career at Stanford, Notre Dame, and finally Oberlin ensued, concluding in after about fifty years.

In the Author's Own Words: "From January into September , I was a wiper an engine-room worker who did painting, cleaning, and other maintenance on a succession of two merchant ships. I experienced what were surely the most fascinating eight months of my life. I'm convinced, in retrospect, that I was in the only wiper in the U. Merchant Marine with a PhD in physics.

Robert Weinstock. This book by Robert Weinstock was written to fill the need for a basic introduction to the calculus of variations. Simply and easily written, with an emphasis on the applications of this calculus, it has long been a standard reference of physicists, engineers, and applied mathematicians.

The author begins slowly, introducing the reader to the calculus of variations, and supplying lists of essential formulae and derivations. Later chapters cover isoperimetric problems, geometrical optics, Fermat's principle, dynamics of particles, the Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue-eigenfunction problem, the theory of elasticity, quantum mechanics, and electrostatics.

Each chapter ends with a series of exercises which should prove very useful in determining whether the material in that chapter has been thoroughly grasped.

The clarity of exposition makes this book easily accessible to anyone who has mastered first-year calculus with some exposure to ordinary differential equations. Physicists and engineers who find variational methods evasive at times will find this book particularly helpful. Synge, Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society.
