Nuclear Motions Associated with Electron Transitions in Diatomic Molecules
The question of nuclear motions associated with electron transitions is discussed from the standpoint of quantum mechanics. It appears that Heisenberg’s indetermination principle gives the clue to
American Association for the Advancement of Science
The American Association opened at Dubuque, Iowa, on August 21, and Prof. Agassiz added an unusual brilliancy to the proceedings by an account of some of his discoveries in the Southern seas.

Wave Mechanics and Radioactive Disintegration
AFTER the exponential law in radioactive decay had been discovered in 1902, it soon became clear that the time of disintegration of an atom was independent of the previous history of the atom and
Quantum Mechanics and Radioactive Disintegration
Application of quantum mechanics to a simple model of the nucleus gives the phenomenon of radioactive disintegration. The statistical nature of the quantum mechanics gives directly disintegration as
A Theory of Intensity Distribution in Band Systems
A theory of the relative intensity of the various bands in a system of electronic bands is developed by an extension of an idea used by Franck in discussing the dissociation of molecules by light
One-Electron Rotatory Power
It is shown that a single electron moving in a field of suitable dissymmetry can give rise to optical rotatory power in a medium containing molecules of this type. This effect is called one‐electron
The Theory of Complex Spectra II
Formulas for the relations between the energies of multiplets arising from the same electron configuration for all two-electron cofigurations up to ff and several cases of three-electron
