The physicist V. Vand (1911-1968) studied at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Charles University in Prague. In his initial studies he devoted himself to the intense observation of variable stars. Together with Antonin Svoboda developed a linkage analog computer for the accoustic detection of aircraft position for the use in anti-aircraft artillery. In 1946-49 he constructed mechanical computers machines for establishing the structure of molecules from X-Ray difraction dates. He cooperated with Francis Crick on the structure of helix molecules by means of the Fourier transform. In 1953 he co-wrote with R. Pepinski the often-quoted and valuable monograph The statistical Approach to X-Ray Analysis. V. Vand also investigated meteor craters. He is the author of the monograph Astrogeology.
