Referee's report by Henry Crozier Keating Plummer, on a paper 'On the independence of sums of squares in the analysis of variance' by S S Wilks

Reference number: RR/51/136

Date: December 1933

Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Finds the paper more suited to a journal of statistics. 'Acceptance might prove dangerous by encouraging a class of paper "elaborating points of detail". In the present case I doubt if the positive merits of the work overcome this objection'.

[Not published]
