TitleReferee's report by Edward Arthur Milne, on a paper 'The derivation of mechanics from the law of gravitation in relativity theory' by G L Clark
DateAugust 1940
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication. It doesn't provide the algebra of the results but it would be a 'tremendous task' to verify all of the algebra. Sufficient indications of the scientific method are given The paper would be better suited to publication Philosophical Transactions, but this may be unfeasible during these times of war. By the standards of general relativity, the paper is good.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1941].
