Stars and Atoms


THIS new volume from Prof. Eddington bears the same relation to his “Internal Constitution of the Stars” as does his “Space, Time, and Gravitation” to his “Mathematical Theory of Relativity.” It is in the form of three lectures, “The Interior of a Star,” “Some Recent Investigations,” and “The Age of the Stars,” with an appendix on the ultimate fate of ‘white dwarfs.’

Stars and Atoms.

By Prof. K. S. Eddington. Pp. 127 + 6 plates. (Oxford: Clarendon Press; London: Oxford University Press, 1927.) 7s. 6d. net.
