|Title||Referee's report by James Hopwood Jeans, on a paper 'Theory of electric charge' by Arthur Stanley Eddington|
|Date||15 April 1932|
|Description||Sectional committee: Mathematics|
He doesn't feel too favourable about the paper and doesn't undertand the Tensor calculus well enough to give an opinion. It is the author's 'third or fourth shot at this problem', as early ones were erroneous and it 'seems to get more complicated rather than more simple at each successive attempt'. A report from Dirac should be sought. The paper will probably be suitable for publication.
