THIS careful study of the electron theory of metals is intended in the first instance as a critical survey of the general principles of the theory and of the approximations made in working out its applications. No attempt is therefore made to give a full account of the applications of the theory to individual metals, and such applications as are given serve as illustrations for the use of the general methods.
