I am greatly honoured by the invitation to present a keynote lecture on nucleate boiling. I accepted with some trepidation and humility, particularly in view of the subject I was asked to tackle. It has always seemed to me that nucleate boiling is a broad complex field and that my own work has amounted to only a few contributions in one corner of that field. However, it seemed that keynote lecturers would not be expected to review all work in their fields. That would be a very daunting task and a rather indigestible lecture as there have been so many valuable contributions in the field of nucleate boiling over the years. The field adjoins various others, such as critical heat flux, two-phase flow and heat transfer in reactor safety, which are (I gather) subjects of other keynote lectures. I have also gathered that there is at least one keynote lecture (on bubble dynamics) which lies within the field of nucleate boiling; indeed that is the corner where my own work lies, so I must resist the temptation to dwell on that.
