TitleLetter from Max Born, regarding a paper 'An elementary theory of thermal diffusion' by R Fürth
Date4 June 1941
DescriptionSectional Committee: Not stated [Physics]

Encloses the paper for submission to the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Refers to work of Sydney Chapman. Does not think the contents of the paper are of interest to the enemy, as the results are not new and are already outlined by Sydney Chapman's. However, as the current paper outlines the results in a clear manner they may be helpful to the enemy. Suggests the opinion of Sydney Chapman be sought on this matter.
