Estonian mathematician From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

**Michael A. Sadowsky** (1902 – December 31, 1967)^{[1]} was a researcher in solid mechanics, particularly the mathematical theory of elasticity and materials science. Born in the Russian Empire, he earned his doctorate in 1927 under the applied mathematician Georg Hamel at Technische Hochschule Berlin-Charlottenburg with a dissertation entitled *Spatially periodic solutions in the theory of elasticity* (in German).^{[2]} He made contributions in the use of potential functions in elasticity and force transfer mechanisms in composites. Many of his early papers were written in German.^{[3]}
