FOLLOWING a suggestion of de Broglie, a theory has been developed by Jordan1 and myself2 in which an attempt is made to reduce the field of radiation with light quanta, obeying the statistics of Bose and Einstein, to a field of particles with spin, obeying the statistics of Dirac and Fermi. These particles have been tentatively identified with the neutrinos, the occurrence of which must be postulated in radioactive β-disintegrations in order that energy and angular momentum may be conserved.
