Abstract : The Bethe-Dyson model for the absorption of heat by a bare metallic slab is examined without considering the mathematical approximations of Bethe and Dyson. Although a machine computation may be necessary for certainty, we find no reason to doubt their conclusion that a relatively small number of heat impulses will melt the slab; in fact, they probably underestimated the heat absorbed, since they did not allow for the increase in the boiling point of the slab due to the high pressure it experiences.
