IAU Symposium quantity fifty two on Interstellar airborne dirt and dust and similar subject matters used to be held at Albany, N.Y., at the campus of the country collage of recent York at Albany from could 29 to June 2, 1972. The contributors of the Organizing Committee have been: Dr A. D. Code, college of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis., U.S.A. Dr B. D. Donn, Goddard house Flight middle, Greenbelt, Md., U.S.A. Dr A. Elvius, Stockholm Observatory, Saltsjobaden, Sweden. Dr T. Gehrels, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, collage of Arizona, Tucson, Ariz., U.S.A. Dr J. M. Greenberg (Chairman), kingdom collage of latest York at Albany, Albany, N.Y., U.S.A. Dr H. C. van de Hulst, Sterrewacht, Leiden, Holland. Dr S. B. Pikel'ner, Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow, U.S.S.R. Dr E. E. Salpeter, Cornell collage, Ithaca, N.Y., U.S.A. Dr B. E. Turner, nationwide Radio Astronomy Observatory, Charlottesville, Va., U.S.A. The recommendation used to be first made in 1971 symposium on interstellar grains will be well timed. The reaction to the 1st initial statement, which used to be despatched out on November 29, 1971, used to be well past our expectancies. The assembly was once in the neighborhood backed by way of the country collage and via Dudley Observatory. The nationwide Aeronautics and area management and the nationwide technological know-how beginning con­ tributed besides the IAU. there have been 158 contributors of whom forty nine have been from 15 international locations outdoor the USA. a complete of ninety two papers have been presented.

Effects of Mass Loss on Stellar Evolution: IAU Colloquium no. 59 Held in Miramare, Trieste, Italy, September 15–19, 1980

The IAU Colloquium No. fifty nine, "The results of mass loss on Stellar Evolution" was once hung on September 15-19, 1980 on the overseas Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste (Italy), below the auspices of the IAU government Co~ mittee and the Italian nationwide Council of study. The making plans of this convention started years in the past du­ ring the IAU Symposium No.

Cerebral Cortex: Neurodegenerative and Age-Related Changes in Structure and Function of Cerebral Cortex

This quantity of Cerebral Cortex is devoted to Sir John Eccles, who was once an lively member of the advisory board for the sequence till his demise in may perhaps 1997. His enter as to what subject matters might be coated in destiny volumes of this sequence should be sorely neglected. the current quantity is anxious with neurodegenerative issues and age­ similar adjustments within the constitution and serve as of the cerebral cortex, an issue that has attracted expanding curiosity as toughness and the variety of elderly contributors within the inhabitants elevate.

Alcoholism and Drug Dependence: A Multidisciplinary Approach

It's for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to write down a short foreword to those court cases of the 3rd foreign convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. through the week specialists, from internationally, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed fresh advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early reputation, administration, and the social and commercial implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene.

Recent observations of interstellar extinction and diffuse galactic light in the ultraviolet are interpreted in terms of a bi-modal size distribution of interstellar grains.

10. The ultraviolet color spans the wavelengths 2175 and 3500 A and was obtained from near ultraviolet scanner data. The colors plotted have been corrected to intrinsic colors by application of the 'average' extinction curve shown in Figure 1. One can see that the near ultraviolet color correlates well with (B - V)o and there are no pronounced luminosity class effects. 95 j;) of the stars are contained in a band ± O~ 15 from the dashed line (a visual estimate of the mean relation). We can conclude that a star's (B- V)o is a good measure of its intrinsic near ultraviolet energy distribution.
