THE London Mathematical Society now issues its transactions in two volumes a year, the Proceedings and the Journal. Vol. 25 of the Proceedings contains 31 technical papers on various branches of mathematics read before the Society between March 1924 and January 1926. The high standard of recent issues is fully maintained, among the more notable contents of this volume being Mr. Chaundy's “Poncelet's Poristic Polygons,” Prof. Landau's “Zum Waringsche Problem,” and Prof. Turnbull's “Invariant Theory of Mixed Quaternary Forms.” Only a small number of papers deal with geometrical matters, an indication that most of the mathematical research now done in England is analytical rather than geometrical in character. Our only criticism is of the length of time, sometimes more than a year, which elapses between the reading of a paper and its appearance in the Proceedings.
