TitleLetter to Nevill Francis Mott, regarding a paper 'A symptotic formulae relating to the physical theory of crystals' by Walter Ledermann
Date19 August 1943
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

The issue of where to publish the paper has been discussed with the Chairman, and there is a case for publication in the Proceedings. The work builds on the work of Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, also published in the Proceedings. Much uncritical publicity given to this work of Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, and normally the correspondent and Arthur Mannering Tyndall would agree that the paper is more suitable for publication elsewhere. The current paper finishes the matter begun by Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman.
