Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Refers to work of Ronald Aylmer Fisher and Harold Jeffreys. The discussion of the subject has been extensive but inconclusive, and it might be time to halt further acceptance of papers on the subject. If this has not yet been done, the current paper is a worthy addition to the discussion.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' A, 1933]

Endorsed on verso as received 31 May 1933.
