    A New Type of A-c Motor. My experience, in common with that of my predecessors, teaches that the alternating current motor has a strong and persistent disposition to stand still, and when persuaded to motion is apt to be a sort of ‘go as you please’ machine and asserts its inherent right to turn in either direction indifferently, direction of rotation in some cases being purely a matter of chance....

    The Ladies in Our Midst. Perhaps not many of our members know that the ladies took over last month — they held their own First International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists at the United Engineering Center in June. Perhaps not many of you know that the ladies have their own national organization in the U.S. — the Society of Women Engineers — with a membership approximating 600. And th... View full abstract»

    This study of actually recorded trends of energy consumption in every country in the world serves to provide a springboard for long-term projections Energy universally and increasingly has become a major subject of public interest; its indispensability to the orderly functioning and steady growth of a nation's economy has come to be regarded as axiomatic. In practically every country, short- and l... View full abstract»

    The process by which a computer can learn is demonstrated by asking it to solve increasingly more difficult versions of the Tower of Hanoi puzzle. Ultimately, the system may learn how to generalize in a particular problem domain Present uses of computers, valuable as they may be, are far from the ultimate in what might be accomplished. One of the reasons is that the solution of even well-defined p... View full abstract»

    U.S. nuclear power plant capacity is now 1.2 GWe. By year 2000, 45 per cent of electric power will be nuclear. Great expansion is also anticipated in ship propulsion, space, and desalting of sea water In less than 25 years, the nuclear chain reaction has progressed from the laboratory to the bomb to extravagant hopes for peaceful utilization, and to disillusionment when the hopes were not quickly ...

    Herewith is presented the Report of the Secretary for the year 1963, the first of operations under the merger arrangement that created the IEEE. Being a formative year in the attacking of problems incident to the merger, some solutions, such as the policy regarding publications, have been adopted and others are in progress but not finalized. In particular, the coordination of office operating rout... View full abstract»

    Thermionic AC Generation. Since thermionic diodes produce a low-voltage dc output, large generators necessarily entail very high total currents. One way of reducing these to manageable size is to connect a large number of small cells in series. Beyond a certain point, however, this leads to a prohibitive decrease in reliability.

    Lasers are produced with noble gases; are used in cell study; and are ‘steered’ by electronic means Laser action at more than 60 new wavelengths has been observed in a new class of gas ion laser. Four gaseous elements — argon, krypton, xenon, and neon — were used to achieve the action, which occurred in both the singly and doubly ionized states of these inert, or “noble” gases. Both pulsed- and co... View full abstract»
