Sectional Committee: Mathematics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The investigation is interesting, but appears to be written for engineers. Finds the paper more suited for a journal of radio-engineering. Cannot judge the mathematical importance, and suggests the paper be submitted to a mathematician.
