Abstract

The present volume to which scientists of many nations from three continents have contributed, notwithstanding the adverse times, gives proof indeed that Professor Niels Bohr’s 60th birthday, on October 7, 1945, is not only his private, personal day of celebration, but a day of observance throughout the scientific community of physicists.1
