Date[May 1939]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The problem considered is an important one, but the paper as it stands is open to criticism on both physical and mathematical grounds. Outlines criticisms of the method and results. The paper is 'overwritten' and treated heavily.
