232 x 152 mm. 8vo. Pages 481-486. [Entire volume: viii, 917 pp.] Navy cloth, gilt spine. Blind-stamps of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Observatory. FINE. FIRST EDITION. In this joint paper by the veteran investigator (Orntsein) and the junior faculty member (Kramers) on atomic theory, the authors investigated how the classical collision formula in the kinetic-theory of gases has to be modified in order that the molecules shall be distributed according to the Fermi-law. In 1914, Leonard Ornstein succeeded Peter Debye as the chair of theoretical physics at the University of Utrecht. Later, Ornstein became director of the physical institute there in 1925. As director of the Institute, Ornstein's work shifted decisively into experiments, and his organizational talent began to unfold. In the preceding dozen years Ornstein had published about fifty papers; in the following twenty years over two hundred bore his own name, and almost five hundred additional papers were published from his institute, which underwent three substantial enlargements in this period. See: DSB, X, pp. 235-236. L. S. At the time that Ornstein became director of the institute, Kramers was appointed to the faculty of the University of Utrecht and had an office at the Institute. Kramers delivered an Obituary on Ornstein in 1941. Dresden, H. A. Kramers, pp. 310-313, 485. Kramers, Collected scientific papers, pp. 375-380; L. S.
