Introduced (Proc Lond Math Soc 1909) into the relativity-theory of the electro-magnetic equations a general quadratic form whose coefficients are characteristic of the medium supporting the field-partial anticipation of general relativity. Discovered the integral equation by which seismic rays in the earth's interior were afterwards calculated by Knott (Phil Mag 1910). Has greatly extended theory of solutions of partial differential equations, especially those occurring in physics. Has published solutions, both analytical and numerical, of various types of integral equations; also papers on radiation and geometry.
