DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Suggests the paper might be more suitable for Biometrika or other statistical journal. The paper continues from an earlier paper published by the Royal Society, but suggests the Royal Society may publish initial investigations, with further more specialist investigations published by specialist journals.
