TitleLetter from Rudolf Ernst Peierls, on a paper 'On the stochastic theory of continuous parametric systems and its application to electron cascades' by Homi Jehangir Bhabha to D C Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date15 August 1949
DescriptionHe has read the author's reply to his comments but doesn't want to alter his recommendation. Some parts aren't readable and should be shortened. The divergence of views between him and the author is 'largely a difference in view as to what does or does not constitute a constructive discussion or what constitutes real insight into the nature of the problem'. A second opinion should be sought.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1950].
