TitleLetter from Samuel Hunter Christie, to Joseph Agar, regarding a paper 'On the resolution of numerical equations' by Joseph Agar
Date11 February 1845
DescriptionRefers to John Ayrton Paris, who may have been mistaken, as the Committee has not yet come to a conclusion regarding publication. The method used is not precise. Suggests putting the paper into a more algebraic form. Suggests giving an illustrative example of each stage of the method. Does not think the paper as it stands is suitable for the Philosophical Transactions. The decision rests with the Council.

Subject: Mathematics
