TitleReferee's report by Edmund Taylor Whittaker, on a paper 'An invariant form for the prior probability in estimation problems' by Harold Jeffreys
Date1945
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

He doesn't think he can make a definite recommendation to the Society. The form is unsatisfactory and there are lots of deletions and additions. The author is 'disprespectful' for submitting the paper in it's present form. He is not greatly impressed by the work but he doesn't have sufficient knowledge of the subject.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1946].
