Title:Conversation with Professor George K Batchelor
Author(s):Batchlor, George K.; Taylor, G.I.
Subject(s):George K Batchlor
G I Taylor
Abstract:On October 26, 1994, Professor George K. Batchelor, F.R.S., of Cambridge University delivered the Yunchuan Aisinjioro-Soo Distinguished Lecture, 'Living with Research', at the Beckman Institute on the campus of the University of Illinois. The following day, October 27, Professor Batchelor visited with various groups on campus. During the morning of that day he spent an hour or so in an open conversation and exchange with faculty and students of the TAM Department. Some highlights of this interesting exchange are transcribed below from a videotape of the occasion. We felt that the exchanges and the many historical remarks, primarily regarding G. I. Taylor, might be of interest to a broader audience, and this provided the motivation for producing a TAM Report available for general circulation.
