TitleReferee's report by Micaiah John Muller Hill, on a paper 'Contributions to the theory of simultaneous partial differential equations' by Alfred Cardew Dixon
Datend [January 1899]
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Has found what appears to be a serious error in some of the calculations. Gives detailed criticism. Finds fault with the author's work on bi-differential equations, but admits he may have just misinterpreted what the author has written, for which he apologises.
