Additional information

Questa rassegna fu presentata dagli Autori al Convegno Internazionale sulle costanti fondamentali della Fisica, tenutosi a Torino, in onore di Amedeo Avogadro, nel Settembre 1956, e viene qui pubblicata in fascicolo a parte causa la sua mole e il suo carattere. NeiRendiconti del Convegno — che usciranno tra breve in altro fascicolo delSupplemente — sarà di questa stessa rassegna dato un breve sunto. [N. d. D.].
