Scientific Papers of Lord Rayleign

Nature volume 68, pages 289290 (30 July 1903) | Download Citation



TO review these volumes in an ordinary sense is an impossible task. Fortunately it is quite unnecessary. Lord Rayleigh's work in its many phases is so well known that a brief notification of the fact that his papers have been collected and published by the Cambridge University Press is almost all that is called for. Every physicist will realise that his library is incomplete without these four splendid volumes, the first of which has already been noticed, and that he will find in their pages the details of many of the most striking advances in his subject during the past twenty years.
