A method is developed for representing any communication system geometrically. Messages and the corresponding signals are points in two "function spaces," and the modulation process is a mapping of one space into the other. Using this representation,...

1. 1. Stimulation of the reticular formation of the brain stem evokes changes in the EEG, consisting of abolition of synchronized discharge and introduction of low voltage fast activity in its place, which are not mediated by any of the known ascending...

This report summarizes recommendations for uniform therapeutic criteria in rheumatoid arthritis. The need for such criteria arose from the recognition of the confusing language and standards found in the many therapeutic reports on this disease. In an...

The electrocardiographic patterns of left ventricular hypertrophy or left ventricular strain in standard limb lead records have received considerable attention from investigators1–10. Less detailed attention has been paid to the pattern of left ventricular...

On the basis of the nucleationtheory developed by Volmer, Becker, and co‐workers, and the theory of absolute reaction rates, an expression is derived for the absolute rate of nucleation in condensed systems.

By obtaining complete solutions, satisfying all the relevant simultaneous differential equations and boundary conditions, representing small disturbances of simple states of steady baroclinic large-scale atmospheric motion it is shown that these simple...

In this paper two things are done. (1) It is shown that a considerable simplification can be attained in writing down matrix elements for complex processes in electrodynamics. Further, a physical point of view is available which permits them to be written...

The problem of the behavior of positrons and electrons in given external potentials, neglecting their mutual interaction, is analyzed by replacing the theory of holes by a reinterpretation of the solutions of the Dirac equation. It is possible to write...

SummaryA calculation is given of the viscous force, exerted by a flowing fluid on a dense swarm of particles. The model underlying these calculations is that of a spherical particle embedded in a porous mass. The flow through this porous mass is decribed...

Formulas for the mean square radii of various branched and ringed polymer molecules are developed under the usual assumptions regarding the statistics of chain configuration. For branched molecules, the mean square radii vary less rapidly with molecular...

The effect of droplet size on surface tension is given theoretical consideration with the help of results of the Gibbs thermodynamic theory of capillarity and of previous results of the author as to the sign and magnitude of superficial densities. It...

The classification of π‐orbitals in a cata‐condensed aromatic system is like that of the orbitals of a free electron traveling in a one‐dimensional loop of constant potential around the perimeter. To take into account electron interaction, certain...

A general treatment of the scattering of radiation by an inhomogeneous material is developed. It is shown how scattering measurements can be used to obtain the average square of the fluctuations in refractive index or electron density and a correlation...

This paper describes some of the phenomena found to have their origin in electrically induced fibration of small particles in fluid liquid suspension. Particular attention is given to induced shear resistances found in layers of the fluid (**0**.01...

A general statistical mechanical theory of interfacial phenomena is developed and expressions are derived relating the surface tension and other superficial thermodynamic functions to the potential of intermolecular force and molecular distribution functions....

Nuclear quadrupole coupling constants in molecules depend on the nuclear quadrupole moments and the variation in electrostatic field at the nucleus. It is shown that this variation of electric field is usually simply related to the molecular electronic...

The radius of a spherical precipitate particle growing in a solid solution of initially uniform composition may be shown to be equal to α(Dt)½, where D is the atomic diffusion coefficient, t the time of growth, and α, the growth coefficient, is a dimensionless...

The terminal velocities for distilled water droplets falling through stagnant air are accurately determined. More than 1500 droplets of mass from **0**.2 to 100,000 micrograms, embracing droplets so small that Stokes' law is obeyed up to...

A new reflection method is described for determining pole figures of flat samples with a Geiger counter x‐ray spectrometer. The chief advantage of the method is that the experimental data may be used directly without corrections for changes in geometry...

The resolving power of the electron microscope and the contrast in the image are calculated for different conditions of focusing, illumination and aperture. These conditions can change the limit of resolution by a factor of about 3. The contrast in the...

The average configuration of polymer molecules in solution is markedly influenced by the obvious requirement, ordinarily disregarded in problems relating to molecular configuration, that two elements of the molecule are forbidden from occupying the same...

The emission lifetimes of the metastable triplet states (phosphorescent states) of a large variety of organic molecules have been measured. The lifetimes are in the range from 10−4 to about 10 seconds. It is shown that the transition probabilities corresponding...

The configurational entropy of a mixture of solvent and polymer molecules composed of segments connected by flexible bonds has been derived for the case in which the lattice they occupy contains limited regions of perfect order (i.e., the crystallites),...

A thermodynamicanalysis of phase equilibria similar to that developed in Part IV when applied to the ternary system of two polymers and a solvent leads to an explanation of the usual incompatibility of different high polymers in solution. Unless their...

The exchange of energy between a system of nuclear spins, immersed in a strong magnetic field Ho, and the lattice vibrations of insulating crystals has been investigated experimentally by the method of nuclear magnetic resonance absorption. The resonance...

In a single crystal of semiconductor the impurity concentration may vary from p-type to n-type producing a mechanically continuous rectifying junction. The theory of potential distribution and rectification for p-n junctions is developed with emphasis...

It is shown that the large-scale quasi-stationary disturbances of the middle-latitude westerlies are produced by the forced ascent of the westerly current over the continental land masses. Friction is found to have an important modifying effect on the...

An approximate theory has been derived describing part of the sound field due to a concave spherical radiator, vibrating with uniform normal velocity; the radius a of the circular boundary is assumed to be large relative to the wave‐length and large...

The spectra of naphthalene, anthracene, naphthacene, phenanthrene, 1,2‐benzanthrene, chrysene, and acenaphthene in n‐heptane solution are extended to 1700A. Electronic energy levels of 17 such cata‐condensed hydrocarbons are collected and compared....

The most important organic compounds which absorb visible light can be classified into three groups typified: (a) by symmetrical polymethines, (b) by porphyrines, (c) by polyenes. Recently it was shown that the position of the absorption maxima of symmetrical...

The left ventricular coronary blood flow and left ventricular oxygen consumption per unit weight have been determined in twenty-six patients by means of the nitrous oxide method in conjunction with catheterization of the coronary sinus. The studies were...

It is shown that the collective electron and London-Heitler models are not to be regarded as different approximations to the same exact wave function for solids in which, according to the former model, there is a partially filled zone of energy levels....

A method of setting up the vibrational secular equation for polyatomic molecules of ``Urey‐Bradley field'' type is described. By this method the vibration frequencies of CCl4, CBr4, CH4, CD4, CCl3Br, CCl2Br2, CClBr3, CCl3H, CCl2H2, CClH3, CCl3D, CCl2D2,...

Many of our present hopes to understand thebehavior of matter and energy rely upon thenotion of field. Consequently it may be appropriate tore-examine critically the origin and use of this century oldconcept. This idea developed in the study of classicalelectromagnetism...
