THE University of Birmingham Extra Mural Department, in co-operation with the Departments of Metallurgy and Chemistry, is providing a course of lectures in the new year for research workers in industry. This series of twenty-four lectures, the most ambitious which the University has so far provided extra-murally, commences on January 14, 1950, at the University, Edmund Street. The course was originally conceived by members of the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Metals, and was planned in response to a request made by them to the Extra Mural Department. The course has the general title "Modern Views of the Solid State". An introductory section on the general theoretical background of wave mechanics (F. R. N. Nabarro) leads on to specialized courses dealing with non-metallic solids (J. E. B. Randies) and with metals and alloys (B. A. Bilby). Further details can be obtained from the Director of the Extra Mural Department, University, Edmund Street, Birmingham 3.
