TitleSecond referee's report by Augustus Edward Hough Love, on a paper 'The stability of the spherical nebula' by James Hopwood Jeans
Date17 January 1902
DescriptionSectional committee: [Mathematics]

The paper as now presented is largely new. Pages one to 43 of the original type-written copy have been replaced by 106 pages of manuscript and the remainder of the type-written copy has been altered a good deal. Given the circumstances, the opinion of a second referee should be sought. The paper is still in need of revision. Is not satisfied by the correctness of some of the methods used, or of the validity of some of the conclusions, and thinks that the paper would be easier to read if some of the work were arranged differently; provides details of this in an appendix, which may be sent to the author. The appendix details points (a) to (l) with reference to particular equations in the manuscript paper.
