Advances in Electronics


THE “Reports on Progress in Physics” have always fulfilled a valuable function in acquainting the specialist in any one of the physical sciences with progress in cognate subjects. These “Reports” cover the whole range of physics, and it was felt that electronics, though a part of physics, so spilled over into electrical engineering and had grown to such a size that a volume of review articles confined to electronics was needed. Dr. L. Marton, now of the Bureau of Standards, has undertaken this task as editor, and the first volume has just been published. Although this is an American publication, it intends to draw freely upon European men of science for review articles, and already plans for volumes 2 and 3 include a number of British contributors. Volume 1 is written entirely by American men of science, but this was due to the difficulties encountered in launching the new venture.
