Conference paper


The speaker (LS) is on record as believing that occasionally, for all its obvious disadvantages, talks should be given by those who had not been deeply involved, if at all, in the subject to be covered. Possible advantages include great freedom in the choice of topics, the lack of a compulsion to cover every detail of the topics chosen, and an objectivity (if some ignorance) in accreditation. Neither of us had been knowledgeable in two of the three topics we have chosen. To avoid pitfalls in our treatment of the third, asymmetric charge transfer, we have given a completely qualitative discussion of developments in that area.
