Date2 February 1895
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Refers to work of Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann and Augustin-Louis Cauchy. The approach taken is inexact and 'masked by the very artificial nature of the analysis used'. The abstract does not give an idea of the methods employed.
