The aim of this book is twofold. Firstly, it is an attempt to provide a full and current account of the Hall effect studies which have been reported in metals and binary metallic systems. This forms the subject of Chapter 7, the latter part of the book where the metallic elements and binary systems are listed in alphabetical order according to the accepted method. The second aim is to support this review of the data with a concise, descriptive survey of the relevant theory. It is hoped that this will be intelligible to the reader with a general familiarity of solid-state physics but who may be unfamiliar with electron transport properties. In short, the aim of the book is precisely that of companion volumes in this series, such as that by Meaden1 which is devoted to the electrical resistance of metals.
