Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Rayleigh thinks the paper should be published in Proceedings without substantial modification but further instructions to the printers seem to be required. All the illustrations should be reproduced. Notes his recommendation is founded upon a cursory examination of the paper only.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1905].

Endorsed on verso as received 7 October 1905.
