Abstract : A list of publications on two areas of investigation is given: (1) Intermolecular forces and their effects on radiative processes and (2) basic problems in the foundation of quantum mechanics. The first included are studies of the theory of intermolecular forces, the coupling between nuclear and electronic motions in diatomic molecules, the theory of radiative processes in plasmas, and an interpretation of spectroscopy satellites induced by the influence of a foreign gas. The second topic included the formulation of joint probabilities for the measurement of non-commiting observables and the general problem of simultaneous measurability of such observables. A paper on three and four-center molecular integrals is included.
