Description

Sectional Committee: Mathematics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Does not feel sufficiently well acquainted with x-ray crystallography to give a report. The mathematics seems satisfactory. Suggests sending the paper to Paul Peter Ewald or Kathleen Yardley Lonsdale. If they find the physics satisfactory, but cannot comment on the mathematics, he will look at the paper again.

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