A Method for the Construction of Minimum-Redundancy Codes

An optimum method of coding an ensemble of messages consisting of a finite number of members is developed. A minimum-redundancy code is one constructed in such a way that the average number of coding digits per message is minimized.

Methods of Conjugate Gradients for Solving Linear Systems1

An iterative algorithm is given for solving a system Ax=k of n linear equations in n unknowns. The solution is given in n steps. It is shown that this method is a special case of a very general method which also includes Gaussian elimination. These general...

On Sound Generated Aerodynamically. I. General Theory

A theory is initiated, based on the equations of motion of a gas, for the purpose of estimating the sound radiated from a fluid flow, with rigid boundaries, which as a result of instability contains regular fluctuations or turbulence. The sound field...

Determination of the equivalence point in potentiometric titrations. Part II

When the potential - volume curve obtained during potentiometric titrations shows only a small potential change at the end-point, it has been customary to plot a deltaE/deltaV - volume curve and to take the peak of this curve as the equivalent point....

Control Methods Used in a Study of the Vowels

Relationships between a listener's identification of a spoken vowel and its properties as revealed from acoustic measurement of its sound wave have been a subject of study by many investigators. Both the utterance and the identification of a vowel involve...

A Generalization of Sampling Without Replacement from a Finite Universe

This paper presents a general technique for the treatment of samples drawn without replacement from finite universes when unequal selection probabilities are used. Two sampling schemes are discussed in connection with the problem of determining optimum...

Describes the characteristics of a variety of diseases of swine, and methods for their prevention and treatment.

Ideal copolymers and the second‐order transitions of synthetic rubbers. i. non‐crystalline copolymers

Theoretical and practical evidence is put forward to show that copolymers can be treated like solutions of small molecules in the interpretation of packing phenomena, and that ideal volume-additivity of the repeating units in copolymers is frequently...

Hypsometric (area - altitude) analysis of erosional topography

The percentage hypsometric curve (area-altitude curve) relates horizontal cross-sectional area of a drainage basin to relative elevation above basin mouth. By use of dimensionless parameters, curves can be described and compared irrespective of true scale....

Asymptotic Theory of Certain "Goodness of Fit" Criteria Based on Stochastic Processes

The statistical problem treated is that of testing the hypothesis that $n$ independent, identically distributed random variables have a specified continuous distribution function F(x). If F_n(x) is the empirical cumulative distribution function and \psi(t)...

The Electrical Resistance of Binary Metallic Mixtures

The existing theories of the resistivity of mixtures assume regular arrangements of the two components, rather than random mixtures. A theory for a random mixture is given, based on the assumption that each crystal acts as if surrounded by a homogeneous...

The Spectra and Electronic Structure of the Tetrahedral Ions MnO4−, CrO4−−, and ClO4−

We have made use of a semiempirical treatment to calculate the energies of the molecular orbitals for the ground state and the first few excited states of permanganate, chromate, and perchlorate ions. The calculation of the excitation energies is in agreement...

Plastic instability under plane stress

This paper examines the conditions for instability of plastic strain under plane stress for a material conforming to the Mises-Hencky yield condition and strain-hardening according to a unique relationship between root-mean-square values of shear stress...

The Franck‐Condon Principle and Its Application to Crystals

The semiclassical Franck‐Condon principle is shown to be related to the more rigorous (``exact'') quantum‐mechanical perturbation formula in the following ways: (1) the Franck‐Condon formula can be derived from the ``exact'' formula by using a mean...

Calculation of Vibrational Relaxation Times in Gases

Vibrational relaxation times in gases are calculated with the method of Zener using an exponential repulsion in a one‐dimensional model. The constants of the interaction potential are determined by fitting it to the data of Hirschfelder, et al. The...

The viscosity of suspensions of rigid spheres

An explanation is given of the dependence of the relative viscosity on the size distribution of the suspended spheres, an effect recently observed by Ward and Whitmore.(1) It is shown theoretically that if the spheres are of very diverse sizes, the relative...

Single-Sideband Transmission by Envelope Elimination and Restoration

A new type of single-sideband transmitter is described which does not require the use of linear radio-frequency amplifiers. Amplification is accomplished by a process in which the phase-modulation component of the single-sideband wave is amplified by...

The Physiological Basis of Variation in Yield

To discover the physiological basis of variation in crop yield, it is necessary to supplement laboratory studies by direct observations on crops growing in field conditions, measuring the simultaneous changes with time throughout the growth period in...

Unimolecular Dissociations and Free Radical Recombination Reactions

The steric and pressure effects associated with the recombination of free radicals both depend on the nature of the activated complex, and are therefore intimately related. From a consideration of the reverse process of unimolecular dissociation, some...

Kinetics of Solidification of Supercooled Liquid Mercury Droplets

The solidification rate of supercooled liquidmercurydroplets is strongly dependent upon the nature of foreign substances on their surface or suspended in them. Droplets (2–8 microns diameter) coated with mercury laurate solidify at rates that are proportional...


To place geomorphology upon sound foundations for quantitative research into fundamental principles, it is proposed that geomorphic processes be treated as gravitational or molecular shear stresses acting upon elastic, plastic, or fluid earth materials...

A Unipolar "Field-Effect" Transistor

The theory for a new form of transistor is presented. This transistor is of the "field-effect" type in which the conductivity of a layer of semiconductor is modulated by a transverse electric field. Since the amplifying action involves currents carried...

Ultraviolet absorption spectra of proteins and amino acids.

Anomalous Paramagnetism of Copper Acetate

The paramagnetic resonance spectrum of copper acetate is anomalous in that it resembles that of an ion of spin 1, and its intensity decreases as the temperature is lowered. The latter is correlated with the decreasing susceptibility found by Guha (1951)....
