Abstract

A SHORT account of a general kinetic theory of liquids which we have recently published in Nature1 ended with the enumeration of a series of problems yet unsolved which were our next aim. The most important of these generalizations is the quantum theory of liquids, because of the strange properties observed in liquid helium II.
