  • ON two occasions (NATURE, May 18 and July 13) Lord Rayleigh has asked for a critical comparison of two theories of radiation, the one developed by Prof. Planck (Drude's Annalen, i. p. 69, and iv. p. 553) and the other by myself, following the dynamical principles laid down by Maxwell and Lord Rayleigh. It is with the greatest hesitation that I venture to express my disagreement with some points in the work of so distinguished a physicist as Prof. Planck, but Lord Rayleigh's second demand for a… CONTINUE READING
