This concise study of extremes of temperature is designed to give beginners in physics greater insight into the mean­ ing of the concept of temperature, how temperatures are measured in all ranges, and where and how the concept of temperature enters into physical discussions. The first two chapters deal with tempera­ ture in macroscopic physics and in statical or microscopic physics. The story of the production and measurement of temperatures near absolute zero is followed by a chapter on the production and measure­ ment of temperatures up to the 50 million degree range. The last chapter goes beyond infinity into the realm of negative temperatures. PUBLISHES FOR THE COMMISSION OH COLLEGE PHYSICS unUtr the General Editorship of EDWARD U.

After receiving his Ph.D. at Columbia in 1927 Professor Zemansky was a National Research Council fellow at Princeton, and a member of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin and the Cryogenic Laboratory at Columbia. A frequent contributor to scientific journals, he is the author of Heat and Thermodynamics, the editor of the section on heat in the Ameri­ can Institute of Physics Handbook, and the co-author of Reso­ nance Radiation and Excited Atoms, College Physics, and Uni­ versity Physics.
