TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Burnside, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Mathematics Sectional Committee
Date23 July 1907
DescriptionT H Havelock's paper on 'the Dispersion of Double Refraction in relation to Crystal Structures' referred by Professor [Joseph] Larmor to Sir William Niven. Niven reports that in correcting the proofs the author might give a fuller explanation of how result nine is established. The result in question is a leading one and it takes some trouble to see how it follows from the equation. Larmor thinks publication in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' should proceed, a note of the referee's suggestion being sent to the author with the proof. Asks if Burnside concurs with this.
