TitlePoisson, Simeon Denis: certificate of election to the Royal Society
CitationForeign Member
Mr Simeon Denis Poisson, Member of the Royal Institute of France, having cultivated with great success the various branches of the higher mathematics, which he has very extensively and accurately applied to the resolution of a number of physical problems, we recommend him as a proper person to be placed on the list of the Foreign Members of the Royal Society, not doubting that his zeal and activity in continuing his researches will fully justify his admission into the Society
