Referee's report by Henry Frederick Baker, on a paper 'Commutative ordinary differential operators. II.—The identity Pn = Qm' by J L Burchnall and T W Chaundy

Reference number: RR/41/37

Date: 23 June 1930

Description

Sectional committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in Proceedings, in its current form. The problem it deals with is uninteresting and the authors refer to their previous papers as reference points, which some readers may not be familiar with. The paper should be shortened. Another opinion should be sought, as he doesn't wish to be unjust.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1931].

Endorsed on verso as received 24 June 1930.
