On the temperature dependence of the velocity of sound in liquid helium

  • A. F. Andreev

The velocity of the first sound in helium II for the low-temperature region in which the lawT4 ln(const/T) holds is calculated. The constant in the logarithm is shown to be very small, and therefore the known results of the logarithmic approximation are not sufficient.
