TitleReferee's report by Edmund Taylor Whittaker, on a paper 'On the moment distributions of moments in the case of samples drawn from a limited universe' by L Isserlis
DateMay 1931
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, if the Council deems it acceptable. It may be better placed in a journal like Biometrika, since it focuses on an equation which is only of interest to mathematical statisticians. The paper is a 'definite contribution to the subject'.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1931].
