TitleReferee's report by Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, on a paper 'On the foundations of dynamics' by Edward Arthur Milne
DateNovember 1935
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in its present form. It contains valuable material but the way in which it is presented and its length make it unsuitable. It appears as 'an attack on Newton's logic and philosophy and this is liable to frighten off readers'. The paper should be re-written.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1936].

Endorsed on verso as received 19 November 1935.
