Reference numberRR/44/97
TitleReferee's report by Charles Galton Darwin, on a paper 'The angular momentum of a photon' by G Temple and E C Rust
DateMay 1931
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Another referee should be used, such as Dirac. He is unable to agree with most of the paper but has not noticed any errors. The work is 'formally right' but the results 'have only a formal significance and it is probable that to trace out the trouble would lead to interesting results'. Two different tenses are used throughout the paper which should be changed. His response to this paper has been delayed, since he was in America.
