|Date||30 October 1949|
|Description||Sectional committee: Physics|
Both of the papers are remarkable and if they are correct, will be on of the largest single advances in the energy state of atoms. Is unable to state that the first paper is completely right but it will take several years to understand principle fully. The Society should publish the paper.
[Both papers published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1950].
