Sedov's writings in chronological order, providing brief annotations and evaluations. Important works by Sedov included in Theoretical Hydromechanics (a TsAGI publication) or published by Oborongiz (the military publishing house), for examination, are included in the listing. Evaluations of two of Sedov's monographs, Two-dimensional Problems in Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics, and Similarity and Dimensional Methods in Mechanics, are given, as these books represent a composite of the work done by Sedov and his colleagues. Chapter III consists of supplementary bibliographies of papers and studies either sponsored by Sedov or mentioning him. Chapter IV sums up the findings of the report, based on the literature survey and remarks of observers at several recent international science conferences. In conclusion, an attempt is made to evaluate L. I. Sedov's scientific contributions and his present role in Soviet scientific activities and propaganda. (Author)
