Three Lectures on Atomic Physics


    IT is encouraging to find that these important lectures by one of the most prominent authorities on spectroscopy, delivered under the auspices of the University of London, are now accessible to all in English. They deal with the spectra of hydrogen and helium, and then proceed to the study of complex spectra such as manganese, iron, nickel, and palladium in the light of Pauli's “Principle of Uniqueness.” The third lecture gives some muchneeded information concerning the structure of crystals, from the point of view of the quantum theory.
