TitleReferee's report by Charles Galton Darwin, on a paper 'Some properties of the wave equation' by Samuel Roslington Milner
DateMay 1933
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication. It is difficult to understand and 'does not seem to have importance proportionate to its length'. The method used is unhelpful and the new facts found are uninteresting. The paper should be sent to another referee, namely Eddington.

[Not published].
