An Invariant Form for the Prior Probability in Estimation Problems

It is shown that a certain differential form depending on the values of the parameters in a law of chance is invariant for all transformations of the parameters when the law is differentiable with regard to all parameters. For laws containing a location...

Time‐Dependence of Boundary Tensions of Solutions I. The Role of Diffusion in Time‐Effects

The variation of surface tension of solutions with time has in some cases, where the change is over within a few seconds or less, been explained on the basis of diffusion. This paper attempts a rigorous mathematical analysis of the role that diffusion...

The Statistical Mechanical Theory of Transport Processes I. General Theory

Outlines are sketched for a general statistical mechanical theory of transport processes; e.g., diffusion,heat transfer,fluid flow, and response to time‐dependent external force fields. In the case of gases the theory leads to the Maxwell‐Boltzmann...

A Note on a Simple Transmission Formula

A simple transmission formula for a radio circuit is derived. The utility of the formula is emphasized and its limitations are discussed.

The Statistical Sign Test

This paper presents and illustrates a simple statistical test for judging whether one of two materials or treatments is better than the other. The data to which the test is applied consist of paired observations on the two materials or treatments. The...

The Experimental Determination of the Intensities of Infra‐Red Absorption Bands I. Theory of the Method

With spectrographs of available resolving power, the apparent integrated absorption coefficients of infra‐red bands usually differ greatly from the true coefficients because the spectrograph yields at each setting a weighted average of the fractional...

Energy Levels and Thermodynamic Functions for Molecules with Internal Rotation: II. Unsymmetrical Tops Attached to a Rigid Frame

Formulas are derived which make the tables and equations of the first paper of this series applicable to this more general class molecules. Additional approximations are involved and these are examined carefully.

Application of the Methods of Molecular Distribution to Solutions of Large Molecules

The equations for the thermodynamic potentials of the solvent in solutions of ordinary organic molecules are extended to solutions of large molecules by methods using continuous molecular distribution functions. Particular attention is given to the coefficient,...

The Behavior of Macromolecules in Inhomogeneous Flow

Following up the ideas of W. Kuhn's skein theory, J. J. Hermans has recently elaborated a theory of the properties of dilute solutions of highly polymerized molecules. Hermans describes the behavior of linear molecules by the diffusion of their end points....

Battle Injuries of the Arteries in World War II

An extensive review of the literature on combat injuries to arteries and their battlefield medical management, illustrating the difficulty of maintaining circulation and avoiding infection and amputation in these cases.

On Some Useful "Inefficient" Statistics

Summary. Several statistical techniques are proposed for economically analyzing large masses of data by means of punched-card equipment; most of these techniques require only a counting sorter. The methods proposed are designed especially for situations...

The Sound Spectrograph

The sound spectrograph is a waveanalyzer which produces a permanent visual record showing the distribution of energy in both frequency and time. This paper describes the operation of this device, and shows the mechanical arrangements and the electrical...

Motion of Waves in Shallow Water. Interaction between Waves and Sand Bottoms

The loss of energy of a travelling water wave, due to the mechanism of the formation of sand ripples and water vortices on a sandy bed, becomes of practical importance when models are used to predict full-scale foreshore movements. On the assumption that...

Theory of communication. Part 1: The analysis of information

Hitherto communication theory was based on two alternative methods of signal analysis. One is the description of the signal as a function of time; the other is Fourier analysis. Both are idealizations, as the first method operates with sharply defined...

Statistical Mechanics of Multimolecular Adsorption II. Localized and Mobile Adsorption and Absorption

It is shown that the transition from localized to mobile adsorption (in the first adsorbed layer) takes place at rather low temperatures for potential barriers of around 1000 cal./mole or less, so that localized physical adsorption should be a very rare...
