TitleReferee's report by James Hopwood Jeans, on a paper 'The kelvin-poincare problem of stellar evolution' by V V Narlikar
DateApril 1933
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

No recommended for publication in Proceedings. The results are very slight and not adequate enough to warrant publication. The conclusion is not of special value. He suspects that the author has been 'led into a futile line of research by someone who is concerned too much with what Thomson and Tait said in 1883'.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1934].
