Professor 1903—CHARLES SANFORD TERRY, M.A. *
The subject of the Lectures is the General History of Europe from the fall of the Roman Empire to the year 1715. The Course is divided into two divisions : (a) Mediæval, to A.D. 1494 ; (b) Modern, A.D. 1494-1715. The two divisions are given in alternate years, but either qualifies for graduation. Candidates for Honours in History are required to attend both.
The alternative text-books of the Course are indicated in the Class Syllabus ; among them, for (a), Emerton's “Introduction to the Middle Ages and “Mediæval Europe” (both by Ginn), or Thatcher and Schwill's “ Europe in the Middle Age” (Murray), or the relative volumes in Rivington's “ Periods of European History”; and for (6), Johnson's Europe in the 16th Century, b*
' and Wakeman's “ Ascendancy of France” (both by Rivington), with Ramsay Muir's “ Atlas of Modern History”.
A Course of Lectures for Advanced Graduation upon European History, 1715-1789, will be delivered by the Lecturer in Modern History throughout the Session on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 11 A.M. Text-book : Hassall's “ Balance of Power" (Rivington). The following chapters of the "Cambridge Modern History" are also prescribed: Volume V., Chapters xiv., (Section 2), xvii., xix., xxi.; Volume VI., Chapters i. (Section 2), ii. (Section 1), iv.-xii., xiii. (Sections 1 and 2), xv. (Sections 2 and 3), xviii. xxi.
The Honours Class meets on Tuesdays, Thursdays, at 11, and Fridays, at 12, throughout the Session. Monthly Èxaminations and Essays are set.
The subject of the Course is the History of Europe from the Treaty of Vienna (1815) to the end of the Franco-German War in 1870. The prescribed literature is indicated in the Class Syllabus.
* Lecturer in History, 1898 to 1903.
The text-books in use are “ The Cambridge Modern History," Lavisse et Rambaud's “Histoire Générale, Haye's “Modern Europe," vol. ii. (Macmillan), and Alison Phillips' “Modern Europe" (Rivington).
The Honours Curriculum in History also includes British History, Mediæval and Modern European History, Constitntional History, which are compulsory; and a selection from the optional group, Greek History, Roman History, Ecclesiastical History, Roman Law, Political Science, and Political Economy. For Courses in these subjects see under “ Examinations”.

1904 HECTOR MUNRO MACDONALD, M. A., F.R.S. There will be five Mathematical Classes.
The Graduation Class will assume a sound knowledge of Mathematics on the intermediate standard of the Preliminary Examination; the part of the session before Christmas will be devoted to plane geometry, pure and analytical, elementary solid geometry, spherical geometry, and mensuration. The second term will be taken up with a course of Trigonometry and of Algebra-permutations, binomial theorem, scales of notation, interest, annuities, indeterminate equations, calculation of logarithms, elementary theory of equations, solution of numerical equations, infinite series, and the complex variable.
In the third term the Graduation Class will be divided, a revision course being provided for one portion and a continuation course for the other. The subjects treated in the continuation course will be: Higher Algebra and Trigonometry, determinants, complex numbers, theory of equations and elementary analysis.
The Advanced Graduation Class is intended for students who wish to devote a second year to Mathematics. The subjects treated in this course will be : Analytical Geometry, Spherical Trigonometry, Elementary Differential and Integral Calculus and Elementary Differential Equations.
The Intermediate Honours Class is intended for candidates for Mathematical Honours. The subjects of the course will be: Analytical Geometry, Spherical Trigonometry, Differential and Integral Calculus.
The Honours Classes (Junior and Senior) will meet three days a week, two hours each day. The Lectures will be arranged as three courses, two of which should be taken in one year and the more advanced the following year.
Prizes will be offered at the commencement of the winter term to students entering the Intermediate Honours Class, for the best knowledge of the subjects treated in the continuation Ordinary course during the previous Summer term, and to Honours students for the best knowledge of the subjects treated in the Honours courses during the previous Summer term.
All students are expected to provide themselves with tables of logarithms.
The following books may be consulted in connection with the lectures :
Geometry--Casey's "Sequel to Euclid".
In teaching and in examining exercises the Professor is aided by his Assistant.
SURVEYING.–Three times a week in the Third (Summer) Term.

The Classes in Natural Philosophy are :--
I. The Ordinary Graduation Class meets daily at 2 P.M. during the first two terms. It will be continued during the third term, on days and at hours to be subsequently arranged, for those students who intend to proceed to the Honours or Advanced Graduation Classes of the following Session. A section of the class will also meet for additional instruction in the work of the first two terms.
The subjects treated in the Ordinary Class are:
1. Dynamics, including the statics and kinetics of solids, liquids and gases.
2. Properties of matter, including the elements of the theory of elasticity and capillarity, and the dynamical theory of gases.
3. Heat, including the definition and measurement of temperature, nature and measurement of heat, its sources, effects and modes of transference. Applications to heat engines and the elements of meteorology.
4. Light, including photometry, the laws of reflection and refraction, the properties of mirrors, lenses and optical instruments in general, the radiation and absorption of light with spectrum analysis, fluorescence. 5. Electricity and magnetism, including :(a) Statical electricity, electrical machines, electrometers,
and atmospheric electricity. (6) Magnetism, the magnetic properties of iron and other
metals, terrestrial magnetism. (c) Current electricity, including the magnetic action of
currents, laws induction, electrolysis, construction and use of dynamo-electric machinery, thermoelectricity, electrical measurements and their prac
tical application. 6. Sound, its mode of propagation, properties of musical instruments, nature of quality, consonance and scales.
The course for session 1917-1918 in the Ordinary Class will comprise Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the above groups, and the subject will be treated so as to require only the elements of mathematics.
II. The Advanced Graduation Class will meet during the first two terms on Mondays and Thursdays at 11.45. In it those branches of physics will be discussed which were not taken up in the Ordinary Class of the previous session. The subjects will be treated experimentally and theoretically, but so as not to require the introduction of Advanced Mathematics.
Where Light forms part of this course, the phenomena of interference, diffraction and polarisation will be considered.
On Tuesdays the Class will receive practical instruction in physical measurements.
During Session 1917-1918, the subjects treated will be Electricity and Magnetism, with portions of the Theory of Heat.
III. The Honours Class will meet on Mondays and Thursdays at 11.45 during the first two terms for the elementary treatment, experimental and theoretical, of those branches of physics which were not taken up in the Ordinary Class during the previous session. On Tuesdays the class meets at the same hour for the more mathematical development of these subjects and also of the Theory of Heat.
When Light forms part of the Honours Course, the phenomena of interference, diffraction and polarisation will be included.
The special subjects discussed in the Session 1917-1918 will be Electricity and Magnetism, and during Session 1918-1919 Sound and Light.
During the third term lectures will be given on the mathematical theories of Statics, Dynamics and Hydrostatics.
