1 Jones, Robert T.; Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA Collected Works of Robert T. Jones - NASA Report No. TM X-3334
USA NASA 1976 First Edition Paperback Fair 
1,025 pages. "Includes papers on a variety of topics, especially aeronautics. Early work of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics on aircraft stability and control appears in the first section and is followed by original contributions in airfoil theory, including theories of sweptback and slender airfoils. Several papers are devoted to the theory of minimum drag and to the theory of the oblique wing. Papers on geometrical optics appear next. Perhaps the most significant of these is the design of a fast (F/.66) monochromatic lens based on an inversion of the Schmidt arrangement. Several papers based on work of Avco-Everett Research Laboratory on cardiac assist devices are included and show elementary applications of fluid dynamics to the design of blood pumps and in particular the intra-aortic baloon pump. The last section presents some simple heuristic techniques in relatistic kinematics - based on conformal coordinates in two dimensions. Here the application to space-like motions provide an interesting duality with einsteinian kinematics." - from Abstract. Above-average but not excessive wear. Binding intact. Unmarked. Two inch tape repair to top of front cover at spine. A sound copy.
