WE regret to announce the death in Göttingen at the age of seventy-eight years of Geheimrat Prof. Gustav Tammann, whose researches in the Universities of Dorpat-Jurjew and Gottingen on metallography and the properties of the crystalline and amorphous states of matter have proved to be of far-reaching importance both to pure science and to the metallurgical and glass industries.
