13642 Ricci           Discovered 1996 Apr. 19 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro (1853-1925) was a professor of mathematics at the University of Padua. Building on the work of Riemann and Christoffel, he developed tensor analysis, a formalism for the study of those properties of physical systems or abstract spaces that remain invariant under changes of coordinates.
