NBS research and technical service activities cover a wide range of subjects in physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and computer sciences. These are related to the specific program areas listed on the inside cover of this catalog. Publications are an important way to communicate the results of these diverse activities to the equally diverse audiences served by the Bureau. In 1979, over 37,000 pages were published by NBS in 1,000 papers. These appeared in the Bureau's own publications series and in non-NBS journals, books, and proceedings. All papers are cited by full title, author(s), place of publication, abstract, and key words. Permuted author and key word indexes facilitate use of the listings, as does the edge index on the back cover. Citations for papers published in the Bureau's formal program are organized by NBS publications series. NBS-authored papers in non-NBS media are cited separately in numerical sequence. In addition, for the convenience of specialists, the titles of all NBS publications for 1979, categorized by major primary subject area, are listed in a special section. NBS papers published by the U.S. Government Printing Office are sold in paper copy by the Superintendent of Documents, and in microcopy by the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). The NBS Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS PUBS) and National Bureau of Standards Interagency Reports (NBSIR's) are sold only by NTIS, both in paper and microcopy form. This issue also contains information on previous NBS catalogs and on the availability of NBS papers published in past years. Also included for completeness are those NBS papers published prior to 1979 but not reported in previous issues of this annual catalog. Like NBS catalogs since 1966 this 1979 compilation has been produced by means of computer-assisted photocomposition. This is the third annual supplement issued since the publication of an 11-year consolidated NBS publications catalog covering the period 1966–76. This consolidation, Special Publication 535, Volumes 1 and 2 are cited on page 9.
