TitleReferee's report by Horace Lamb, on a paper 'The integration of the equations of propagation of electric waves' by Augustus Edward Hough Love
DateJanuary 1901
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions in full. Discusses the following modifications; notes on page two, line 11, the statement of Kirchhoff's result is not quite correct. Thinks the general statements in section five rather obscure. On page 41 some justification for the assumption that the disturbances[?] on the near side of the source consist merely of a standing wave should be given. The assumption is not exact in any case. In the important reference to Helmholtz on page 40, the wrong page is given. All the accompanying illustrations should be reproduced.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1901].
