The International System of Units (SI).
Page, Chester H., Ed.; Vigoureux, Paul, Ed.
This document gives definitions and symbols for the basic units of measure, for derived units, and for supplementary units. Decimal multiples and sub-multiples of units and units outside the International System also are discussed. Appendix I reproduces the decisions made on units and on the International System by two committees (the General Conference of Weights and Measures and the International Committee of Weights and Measures) since 1889; Appendix II outlines methods which metrological laboratories can use to derive the units and to calibrate standards.
