TitleReferee's report by Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, on a paper 'The equations of electromagnetism. I - Fundamental identifications. II - Field theory' by Edward Arthur Milne
DateNovember 1937
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, after dramatic shortening. The author should decide if his theory is in agreement with Maxwell theory. The author should write a separate paper giving all the equations of his present work, which would be more useful than this one.

[Both papers published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1938].
