The Theory of the Properties of Metals and Alloys

Nature volume 139, pages 348349 (27 February 1937) | Download Citation



THE great interest with which the electron theory of metals has been received by physicists is due chiefly to two reasons. The first is the practical importance of metals and their great variety, enhanced by the possibility of alloying different metals. Thus a large amount of experimental data has been collected, and offers an extensive field for theoretical investigation which, in its turn, will be helpful from the practical point of view as a guide for the classification and discussion of the material.
