TitleUnpublished paper, 'The uniform wave of oscillation. An analysis' by John Imray
CreatorImray; John (1820-1902); Scottish engineer; patent attorney
DateMarch 1874
DescriptionThe results of the investigation worked out in this paper correspond with those previously deduced by other analysts, particularly by [William] Froude. The paper is therefore presented, not because it discloses any novel result, but rather as an example of a method which the author has found useful in the discussion of other dynamical problems.

Marked on front as 'Archives Dec 17/74'. Includes one page of geometrical diagrams.

Received 11 April 1874. Read 21 May 1874. Communicated by Froude.

Written by John Imray at 20 Southampton Buildings [London].
