Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The authors have clearly struggled with the subject, as he himself did with Ralph Howard Fowler. Suggests it is more suitable for a book on the subject, rather than a journal article.
