Referee's report by William Mitchinson Hicks, on a paper 'The integration of the equations of propagation of electric waves' by Augustus Edward Hough Love

Reference number: RR/15/213

Date: February 1901

Description

Sectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The mathematical calculations are already as condensed as they can be without rendering the paper difficult to follow. All the accompanying illustrations should be reproduced. The paper is very valuable, both for the general method developed as well as for the interesting application at the end.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1901].

Endorsed on verso as received 19 February 1901.
