Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', but only because the paper appears to conclude the preceding series of papers by the same author. On it's own merit, the paper is not considered worthy of publication. The mathematics is inaccurate, and unecessary for the subject at hand. The theorems are given adequately in the abstract already published in the Proceedings.

Subject: Mathematics, Physics
