Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The tables should be published. Suggests submitting the paper to Douglas Rayner Hartree, who is more familiar with the techniques used. Suggests replacing the discussion of the apparatus with a statement on the integrals to be computed. Refers to Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution of James Clerk Maxwell and Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann.
