Letter from Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, to Alfrd Charles Glyn Egerton, regarding a paper 'The cascade theory with collision loss' by Homi Jehangir Bhabha and S K Chakrabarty

Reference number: RR/68/217

Date: 17 April 1942

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics

As returning the paper to India would cause much delay, suggests retaining the tables and omitting some columns, to aid clarity. Would the cost saving be worthwhile? Thinks the paper could be printed in the Philosophical Transactions, and only suggests the Proceedings in the report as that is where papers of a similar subject have been published.

Requests the return of a paper by K M Guggenheimer ['On nuclear energy levels', DOI: 10.1098/rspa.1942.0069 Vol.181 1942], so as to ask the author to amend it in accordance with the recommendations of the referee.

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