Item Description'The material included herein covers the same ground and supplements the talks given at a symposium on transistors, which was held at the Bell Telephone Laboratories during September, 1951... In the three odd years since the transistor was announced, work has been going on to study and perfect this device in order to make it a useful and reliable tool for general application... In this volume, as in the symposium, the treatment follows the general sequence of -- theory, transistor properties, circuit design principles, application and, finally, characteristics of different transistor types now under development...'
