Integral properties of periodic gravity waves of finite amplitude
A number of exact relations are proved for periodic water waves of finite amplitude in water of uniform depth. Thus in deep water the mean fluxes of mass, momentum and energy are shown to be equal toExpand

The symmetry groups of non-rigid molecules
The concept of molecular symmetry is extended to molecules such as ethane and hydrazine which can pass from one conformation to another. The symmetry group of such a molecule is the set of (i) allExpand

The Perception of Musical Rhythms
A simple theory is proposed of how a listener may infer the rhythm of such a sequence by comparing the note lengths. Expand

Planetary waves on a rotating sphere
Simple solutions are found for barotropic planetary oscillations of a fluid in a β-plane, both in the unbounded plane and in enclosed basins of various shapes. These are com pared with analogousExpand

The statistical thermodynamics of multicomponent systems
This paper describes a new statistical approach to the theory of multicomponent systems. A ‘conformal solution’ is defined as one satisfying the following conditions: (i) The mutual potential energyExpand

Mental Processes: Studies in Cognitive Science
From the Publisher: Can humans compute? This is the question to which H. Christopher Longuet-Higgins, one of the founding figures of cognitive science, has devoted his research over the past twentyExpand

The Role of the Vertical Dimension in Stereoscopic Vision
It is shown how the full three-dimensional structure of a scene may in principle be computed from a correlated pair of retinal images, when all that is known about the orientations of the two eyes isExpand

The alternation of bond lengths in long conjugated chain molecules
Ooshika (1957) has recently found, using the self-consistent molecular orbital theory, that a cyclicpolyene C2nH 2n exhibits marked bond alternation if n is very large. Here we show that, providedExpand

The quadrupole moments of dipolar molecules
The electric quadrupole moment of a dipolar molecule depends upon the molecular origin from which it is measured. An electro-optical method has been successfully used for measuring the quadrupoleExpand
