Scientific Memoirs: being Experimental Contributions to a Knowledge of Radiant Energy

    Abstract

    THE scientific world is to be congratulated on the accession to its literature of these memoirs constituting as they do a distinct historical sketch of the works of a physicist who is at once an ardent experimentalist and a careful theorist. As he remarks in his preface, many of his results of experimental investigation on scientific topics have been largely disseminated in European languages, and many of the conclusions they have presented have been admitted into the accepted body of scientific knowledge. The papers in which these results were published have, however, appeared from time to time in various American and English periodicals, but we now have them collected in a form in which they are accessible and convenient for reference.
