TitleReferee's report by John Edward Lennard-Jones, on a paper 'A new theory of melting points' by F C Frank
DateOctober 1938
DescriptionSectional committee: Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, after revision. The paper is written in an obscure way and it will be unintelligible to most. The author has something to say, but 'does not say it very well'. The paper is more of a discussion than a theory.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1939].
[Title changed to 'Melting as a disorder phenomenon'].
