Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The mathematics appears to be sound.

Suggests 'an author of some standing cannot be expected to acquiesce in the suppression of his idea without a clear criticism'.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']
