DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, in full. The general view seems to be against the author but the paper should be published regardless. If it is wrong, 'he can and should bear the blame himself'. If it is right, 'it is most important and if wrong, it is his own funeral'.
