By H. C. Van De Hulst (auth.), H. J. Habing (eds.)

The following textual content varieties the complaints of a convention. it really is presupposed to comprise what used to be truly pronounced and mentioned, even though it does this, one hopes, in a elegant and arranged manner. a feeling of reality, a reporting caliber, makes this booklet various from a set of overview papers as, for instance, a ebook within the sequence on Stars and Stellar structures. All Invited reviews were integrated because the newshounds wrote them. The Editor's activity has been limited to bettering the presentation, a method which generally concerned merely minor revisions. In a number of reviews the Editor did a few heavy rewriting; in these situations he checked with the newshounds. evidently a distinct direction needed to be focused on appreciate to the Discussions. They have been recorded on tape, transcribed verbatim after which handed again to the discussants. After the discussants lower back their types, the Editor rearranged and condensed the texts and made a substantial attempt to supply references. (Unfortunately he used to be unable to find all appropriate Russian papers from 1968 and 1969. ) The Editor takes the accountability for error made during this strategy, that could have produced sometimes his personal 'mix-master Universe'. truly just a couple of dialogue comments have been rejected, extra actually because of incomprehensibility, instead of as the comment used to be faraway from the topic of the Symposium, or was once too lengthy, or was once too trivial. a number of very lengthy feedback were condensed and positioned on the finish of a Discussion.

What did we now have in brain whilst in may perhaps, 1976, we (Professor de Gennes, Dr. Tourand and ourselves) considered a summer time college within the box of drinks? First, we needed to offer and talk about the recent effects which were received lately, specifically on the excessive flux reactor of the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble because it turned operational in 1972.

Herd1 SUN GALACTIC CEN ER Fig. 1. 5 representing the overall picture of our Galaxy. represents galactocentric longitude. The smooth spiral galaxy thus derived is shown in Figure 1. The real Galaxy is far more complex than the idealized system shown in Figure 1. We employ the extensive observations of HI now available and utilize the rotation curve established by Schmidt (1965) to derive the galactic model shown in Figure 2a (Weaver, 1970). Shown in Figure 2b for comparison is the observed distribution of young stars and Hn regions (Schmidt-Kaler, 1964).

Smooth 'globules' may be simple to conceive but the similarly small pitch-dark cloudlets with ragged edges (Bok, B, p. 34) are to me still quite puzzling. There is a lot to do.
