Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Finds the mathematics correct. Finds no interest in the principles, as all the interest lies entirely with the mathematics. Finds the work more suited for the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Suggests submitting the paper to Leonard Bairstow or Thomas Henry Havelock.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society]

Endorsed on verso as received 18 March 1936.
