Introduction à l'oeuvre de S. Kichenassamy en Physique Théorique

Abstract : The work of S. Kichenassamy (1926–2015) in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics covers the spectrum of Relativistic Physics : from the clarification of the postulational basis of the two theories of Relativity, to applications to the measurement of proper time, image formation, collision theory, kinetic theory and radiative transfer, or pulsar electrodynamics, to name a few. After brief biographic remarks, we show, by following an argument first formulated in 1963, and developed in a series of papers, that the physical interpretation of General Relativity requires the replacement of the strong equivalence principle by the C-equivalence principle. By giving a mathematical status to the observer, his insight yields new results regarding measurements actual observers can make, both in Special and in General Relativity. Applications are outlined. His contributions to Indology will be discussed elsewhere.
