The most recent of several conferences on sector‐focusing accelerators was the Gatlinburg meeting on advances in meson and nuclear research below 1 BeV, which was held last November. The matters discussed are reviewed here by A. Zucker, associate director of the Electronuclear Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and A. H. Snell, assistant director of ORNL.
This survey of the conditions that must be met in controlling the fusion process is based on a paper presented at the Plasma Physics Symposium of the New York State Section of the American Physical Society, which took place at Tarrytown, N.Y., on April 13 and 14, 1962. J. A. Reynolds is a member of the staff of the General Electric Research Laboratory.
Currently used methods for determining the physical characteristics of plasmas are discussed in this article, which is based on a talk delivered at the plasma physics symposium of the New York State Section of the American Physical Society. Sanborn C. Brown is professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
This discussion of the techniques, advantages, and future prospects of generating electrical power by magnetohydrodynamical means was originally presented at the APS New York State Section's symposium on plasma physics. The author is associated with Aeronautical Research Associates of Princeton, Inc., and with the Plasma and Space Applied Physics Group at RCA's David Sarnoff Research Center.
The following brief account of the NATO advanced study institute held July 16 to August 4, 1962, in Istanbul, Turkey, was written by two physicists who took part in the program. O. W. Greenberg is a member of the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Maryland. E. P. Wigner is professor of mathematical physics at Princeton University.
