Scientific Papers


    THE sixth1 volume of Lord Rayleigh's collected works, just issued by the Cambridge University Press, contains his papers, nearly one hundred in number, published between 1911 and his death in 1919. In fact, the last two papers, Nos. 445 and 446, of the whole series were left ready for publication, but had not appeared when he died, while the concluding paragraphs of No. 444, on “The Travelling Cyclone,” were-dictated by him only five days before his death, on June 30. He was happy in being able to continue his work until so near the end, and in his fifty years of active scientific life to achieve so much.
