  Richard C. Tolman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Richard Chace Tolman (March 4, 1881–September 5, 1948) was an American mathematical physicist and physical chemist who was an authority on statistical mechanics and made important contributions to the early development of theoretical cosmology.
Tolman joined the California Institute of Technology in 1922, where he became professor of physical chemistry and mathematical physics, and later dean of the graduate school.
Each year the Tolman Medal, named for Richard Tolman, is awarded by the southern California section of the American Chemical Society "in recognition of outstanding contributions to chemistry".

 Tolman Award   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The Tolman Medal is awarded each year by the Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society in recognition of outstanding contributions to chemistry.
Richard Chase Tolman, for whom the Tolman Award was named, was born March 4, 1881 in West Newton, Massachusetts.
Tolman wrote a tome on Statistical Mechanics, and taught that subject to generations of Caltech students, but he was probably best known for his masterful treatise "Relativity, Thermodynamics, and Cosmology", the lectures which first introduced many students to tensors, as well as to some of the mysteries of general relativity.

Richard Alvin was born to us here on August 12, 1948 and Kathy wasn't sure she wanted a little brother to share all the attention she usually got.
Richard had graduated from Highland in May and he went to BYU that fall and it was nice for him and Kathy to be in Provo together, but our home was beginning to feel empty.
Richard and Elder Valenga had been in Sister Phelps home (a $50,000 home and at that time that was an expensive home) and it exploded leaving no one brick joined to another.

 Intervention for Men Who Batter: A Review of Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Tolman and Bhosley (1990), Harrell, (1991) and Saunders (1994), for example, included measures of women s fearfulness of their partners in their evaluations.
For example, Tolman and Bhosley (1990) examined the psychological well-being of battered women approximately one year after their partners had participated in batterer groups.
Our own reviews (Tolman and Bennett, 1990; Eisokovits and Edleson, 1989) revealed consistent findings that in varying programs, using various methods of intervention, a large proportion of men stopped their physically abusive behavior subsequent to involvement in the programs.

 Emission-Absorption-Scattering (EAS) Sub-Quantum Physics - Part 3
[24 October 2004] Tolman was not into enroute changes in the speed of light brought about by absorption and re-emission by charges in a transparent medium, as attributed by John Fox.
Both Tolman and de Sitter, who were fervently trying to bury Ritz's ballistic emission theory of electrodynamics, espoused the belief that the speed of light was not much affected by its passage through the Earth's atmosphere.
Tolman did wrestle with an absorption-emission change in light velocity, but he was primarily concerned with the abrupt reversal in light direction upon its reflection (a change in velocity) by the atoms (charges?) in a mirror's silvered surface.

 A Review of Research on Welfare and Domestic Violence Journal of Social Issues - Find Articles
PRWORA established a maximum 60-month time limit for total lifetime receipt of federal benefits under Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) program and also mandated that women receiving benefits be involved in work-related activities within 24 months of initial enrollment, with "work-related activities" defined by the states.
For this reason, advocates for battered women and policymakers are concerned that abusers will interfere with women's ability to work, resulting in women losing welfare benefits and remaining trapped in abuse.
We summarize and critique the existing research on domestic violence and welfare in several areas: prevalence of domestic violence among women receiving welfare; relationship of domestic violence to their employment; and physical health and mental health, child support, and evaluations of policies and programs.

 TIME.com: Fuzzy Allegory -- Jun. 20, 1949 -- Page 1
Christopher Morley's new novel, The Man Who Made Friends With Himself, is a long epigram-studded footnote on the life of Richard Tolman, a literary agent who commutes and ruminates between his Long Island home and his Manhattan office.
Richard Tolman felt a certain uneasiness at finding himself living outside the centuries of his favorite authors, but it was not for lack of physical comforts.
Richard's heart, however, belonged to Zoe Else, a New York psychiatrist whose attractions were heightened by a familiarity with Bartlett's Familiar Quotations that was almost as inclusive as his own.

It also recognizes his formative contributions to computer modeling techniques that have helped to reveal more about the body’s complex chemistry—work that proved essential to the genesis of the field of computational biochemistry.
The award is especially sweet for Warshel, he says, because it validates the “theoretical approach” he’s championed for decades, often in the face of skepticism from chemists who doubted the value of using computer simulations to understand the details of enzymatic reactions.

says Richard Tolman in his classic treatise on Relativity.
The progression of time, on the other hand, is unchecked by gravitation, and the velocity of the progression is so high that any motion in three-dimensional time is negligible (relatively) except at extreme velocities.
