This thesis is a study of the degree of uniform linear approximation with side conditions. The side conditions considered fall into four categories namely: Lagrange interpolatory side conditions imposed on approximation from finite dimensional subspaces of C(T) ,T compact Hausdorff; Hermite-Birkhoff interpolatory side conditions imposed on approximation by algebraic or trigonometric polynomials on finite intervals; the side condition "increasing to the right" imposed on approximation by algebraic polynomials on finite intervals (the results here are applied to rational approximation on [0,∞)); and generalized monotonicity side conditions imposed on approximation by algebraic polynomials on finite intervals. Jackson type estimates are obtained for the degree of approximation in each case. In addition, for the side conditions of an interpolatory type, best possible asymptotic bounds are found for the ratio of, the degree of approximation with side conditions, to, the degree of unconstrained approximation.

An investigation of the heterogeneous equilibria involved in the systems (a) potassium chloride - mercuric chloride -acetone at 25 degrees C; (b)potassium chloride - mercuric chloride - ethyl alcohol at 25 degrees C; (c) mercuric chloride - acetone - water at 25 degrees C and 35 degrees C Wilkins, G. J. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1937)It has long been realised that the mercuric halides, as salts, possessed remarkable properties. They are readily soluble in non-ionising solvents, have low melting points, and their solutions even in hydroxylic solvents ...

Chemistry, 1940)The metals of Group IIA in the Periodic Table show a tendency to form complexes and hydrates. Increasing tendency to form hydrates is accompanied by increasing solubility of the salts in water, except in the case of salts ...
