TitleReferee's report by Edwin Bailey Elliott and John Edward Campbell, on a paper 'The simple group of order 25920' by Professor William Burnside
DateJanuary 1906
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings. If published it should be published as it stands. The referees think this a powerful paper. Much beautiful geometry is presented and would in itself suffice to make the paper valuable. It seems also to make a new departure in the synthesis of groups, and the importance of this is not impaired by the fact, to which the author calls attention, that Herr Witting has already associated the configuration and the group finally arrived at by an analysis of the latter.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1906].
