|Title||Referee's report by Ronald Aylmer Fisher, on a paper 'An electrical calculating machine' by R R M Mallock|
|Date||11 April 1933|
|Description||Sectional committee: Mathematics|
Recommended for publication. He hopes the machine described will be on show at an upcoming soiree. Is unsure if the author has used the best physical principle for his purpose. He may have under-rated the ease with which simultaneous equations with no more than ten unknowns may be calculated. The machines aren't cheap (around £100) but can be easily mastered by untrained workers. A machine for twenty equations may have been more impressive.
