Memorandum from D C Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society, on a paper 'The instability of liquid surfaces when accelerated in a direction perpendicular to their planes. I' by Geoffrey Ingram Taylor to Douglad Rayner Hartree

Reference number: RR/72/251

Date: 09 December 1949

Description

Brunt suggests the most suitable referee for the two papers is George Temple, asks if he agrees.

Hartree agrees, although the work seems so original and interesting that a referee's report seems 'superflouous'.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1950].

Endorsed on recto as received 10 December 1949.
