A friend of mine asked me this question
Did Einstein, as well as Bergmann, consult on underwater sound during WW II?
Does anyone know the answer?

Thanks

Pete

Einstein was instrumental in the founding of the National Defense Research Committee (NDRC). One of its first big projects was electronic discrimination of accoustic signals - probably for submarine detection. I don't recall Einstein doing any of the work though.

Who is Bergmann?

"From 1941-1944, Professor Bergmann taught at Black Mountain College and at Lehigh University. From 1944-1947, he was engaged in war research on underwater sound at Columbia University and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution"

Nuts! I lost the site I cut this from.

Oh well, it's out there somewhere.

Just a coincidence?
