TitleReferee's report by Alfred George Greenhill, on a paper 'Discontinuous fluid motion' by J G Leathem
Date10 May 1917
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Requests not to be asked to report on the paper, and suggests the Committee send the paper 'to some one else more in touch with the spirit of the research'. Cannot grasp the utility of the method in either this or the author's previous paper ['Some applications of conformal transformation to problems in hydrodynamics', Philosophical Transactions A, DOI: 10.1098/rsta.1915.0014 Vol.215 1915]. 'My feeling in running through this paper was a sensation of the spirit of SINN FEIN [sic]'.
