Stephen Hawking / Quote

by Stephen Hawking

The name of Stephen Hawking is not new to those who studied cosmology. He is famous for his research work at Centre of Theoretical cosmology. He is also known for Theoretical physicist and cosmologist. He worked a lot for humanity, with the collaboration of Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorem is one of his famous work in the history. Very few people know that he was infected with serious disease known as motor neuron disease. His appreciation for quantum of mathematics is written in golden words. In short he is included in the legends.

Stephen William Hawking was born some time back on January 8, 1942 in Oxford, England. His family’ house was at north London, but during the Second World War, it is believed Oxford was considered a safer place to live. When he attained at the age of eight, his family had moved to St. Albans, a town seemed to be at about 20 miles north of London. At the age of eleven, Stephen had started going to St. Albans School and then on to University College, Oxford. It is believed his father had also studied from the same college. Stephen wanted to study Mathematics, whereas his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics subject was not available at University College, so he had pursued Physics instead. Later on after three years and not very much work, he was given a first class honours degree in Natural Science.

It is the history that spells out that Stephen Hawking had made major contributions to the field of general relativity. These derive is no doubt from a deep understanding of what is relevant to physics and astronomy, and particularly from a mastery of wholly new mathematical techniques. Hawking had proved the basic theorems on the laws governing black holes: that motionless solution of Einstein’s equations with smooth event horizons must automatically be ax symmetric; and that in the evolution and interaction of black holes, the total outside area of the event horizons must increase. In partnership with G. Ellis, Hawking is the author of an impressive and unique treatise on Space-time in the Large.
