TitleReferee's report by Charles Galton Darwin, on a paper 'On the electromagnetic two-body problem' by John Lighton Synge
DateJuly 1940
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication. He has little enthusiasm for the paper, as it is the work of a mathematician who has strayed into physics and 'makes certain hypotheses and works out their consequences without any reference to physical activity'. The paper has little value and shouldn't be accepted. Asks for a second opinion on the paper from another referee.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1940].

Endorsed on verso as received 31 July 1940.
