The heat of shortening and the dynamic constants of muscle
The hope was recently expressed (Hill 1937, p. 116) that with the development of a more accurate and rapid technique for muscle heat measurement, a much more consistent picture might emerge of the

ON November 4 Prof. A. V. Hill gave a Friday Evening Discourse at the Royal Institution, his subject being "The Dimensions of Animals and their Muscular Dynamics". He pointed out that mammals vary in
Muscular exercise, lactic acid, and the supply and utilisation of oxygen
Hartree and A. V. Hill (1) have shown in the isolated frog’s muscle that the maximum rate of the recovery heat-production is proportional to the square of the total initial heat liberated by the
The Velocity of the Pulse Wave in Man
The following pages contain the results arrived at, together with an account of experiments upon the velocity of the pulse wave in an isolated human artery, from an investigation now being carried out at Manchester.

At an initial extension not greater than that at which the developed tension is a maximum the system is ‘stable’ and the tension reaches its full value sharply: at extensions on the outer side of the maximum the System is “unstable” and a long slow creep of rising tension occurs.
