It is shown that a certain differential form depending on the values of the parameters in a law of chance is invariant for all transformations of the parameters when the law is differentiable with… Expand

It often happens that when two sets of data obtained by observation give slightly different estimates of the true value we wish to know whether the difference is significant. The usual procedure is… Expand

It is well known that in certain circumstances a type of instability may arise at the surface of separation of two fluids when there is a finite difference between the velocities on the two sides of… Expand

THE author of the latest discussion of the foundations of physics, Prof. P. W. Bridgman, of Harvard University, is a highly distinguished experimenter in a branch of physics with a peculiarly… Expand

IT seems worth while to compare various estimates of the secular accelerations of the Moon's mean motion (\[ndot]) and the Earth's rate of rotation (\[omegadot]), and also of the dissipation (dE/dt)… Expand

This book is a searching analysis of the fundamental principles of the theory of probability and of the particular judgments involved in its application to concrete problems and is in agreement with the views expressed by Dr. Wrinch and the present reviewer.Expand

1. Geological observation provides abundant evidence of fractures in the upper crust, the relative displacements of the sides of a fracture being anything from a few centimetres to thousands of… Expand
