The Mathematical Tripos


IN NATURE of January 17 (p. 273) there is a long article by Prof. Perry which contains a one-sided account of the new regulations for the mathematical tripos. So far as I can see, no new arguments are suggested, for every statement has been already fully discussed and as, I believe, thoroughly answered. To repeat all these at length would take too much space and time; but perhaps the Editor of NATURE will allow me to remark on two or three assertions which can be answered in a few words.
