An experimental study has been made of some aspects of the phenomena accompanying the collapse of liquid columns on to a rigid horizontal plane with air as the outer medium. The cases covered include… Expand

Quantum Mechanics of Electrons in Crystal Lattices

Introduction .–Through the work of Bloch our understanding of the behaviour of electrons in crystal lattices has been much advanced. The principal idea of Bloch’s theory is the assumption that the… Expand

Part I. The diffraction theory of sea waves and the shelter afforded by breakwaters

- W. Penney, A. T. Price, J. C. Martin, W. Moyce, C. K. Thornhill
- Physics
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 4 March 1952

The diffraction of sea waves round the end of a long straight breakwater is investigated, use being made of the solutions of mathematically analogous problems in the diffraction of light. The wave… Expand

Part II. finite periodic stationary gravity waves in a perfect liquid

- W. Penney, A. T. Price, J. C. Martin, W. Moyce, C. K. Thornhill
- Physics
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 4 March 1952

The possible existence, form and maximum height of strictly periodic finite stationary waves on the surface of a perfect liquid are discussed. A method of successive approximation to the solution of… Expand

Part V. An experimental study of the collapse of fluid columns on a rigid horizontal plane, in a medium of lower, but comparable, density

- J. C. Martin, W. Moyce, W. Penney, A. T. Price, C. K. Thornhill
- Physics
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 4 March 1952

The results of an investigation of collapse of fluid right-circular cylinders in a medium of comparable density are described. Qualitative and quantitative similarities between the surges produced by… Expand

Influence of Crystalline Fields on the Susceptibilities of Salts of Paramagnetic Ions. II. The Iron Group, Especially Ni, Cr and Co

- Geology
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
- 11 June 1970

The nuclear explosive yields at Hiroshima and Nagasaki have been calculated from measurements of the damage caused to some objects whose dynamical responses were simple enough to permit analysis.… Expand
