Presents quantitative data on facet analysis of compound, subjects in the field of Physics, published, in Britain during the two time epochs 1961 and 1981. The data is analysed and consolidated on the basis of the following criteria for distribution of documents. 1) by major subjects in the universe of subjects. 2) by subclass of Physics. 3) by the number of facets in the compound subjects. 4) by fundamental categories (PMEST). 5) by speciators to compound facets.
