Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Refers to the communicator George Udny Yule. The work is thorough and mathematically sound, but only deals with the simplest possible case. The conclusions are not new and have been previously printed by other researchers. Refers to opinions of Wishart [?]. Suggests the paper be submitted to another, independent mathematician.
