[Letters to Editor]


MR. HARPER is quite right. It would appear from his investigation that it is impossible to apply the transformations in question to fluid motions with stationary vortices, notwithstanding that a vortex transforms into a vortex, and a fluid particle other than a vortex which is at rest transforms into a particle also at rest. It is a pity that this fact was overlooked, and that results were consequently published which are of less interest than was supposed at the time.
