TitleLetter from Rudolph Ernst Peierls, on a paper 'The intermediate state of superconductors. I. Magnetization of superconducting cylinders in transverse magnetic fields' by M Désirant and David Shoenberg
Date16 January 1948
DescriptionFinds it hard to decide whether the paper should be published in Philosophical Transactions or Proceedings. Proceedings would be preferable, as printing it in Philosophical Transactions would mean a longer delay in publication which would be undersirable for the important results contained in the paper.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1948].
