Portée et contenu

Trin[ity] Coll[ege], Cam[bridge]. - Has looked again at Goldstein's manuscript, and suggests changes, with mathematical notation. 'In the aggregate this will save quite a lot of space & look much nice'. Does not think it's necessary to return the manuscript, as 'the changes can be made easily by systematic instructions to the printer - less trouble to me as well as to you'.

Adds postscript asking Goldstein to think of ideas for Cambridge Tracts in Applied Mathematics, for which Hardy is 'editor designate'. Thinks that the present programme includes only his own paper with Rogosinski, Fourier Series, which will appear on 11 February, Smithies' Integral Equations and Copson's Asymptotic Expansions; the last two 'can hardly be got ready until after the war'. Notes that the series is 'by no means strong on the applied side. Of course, what is contemplated is very mathematical applied mathematics - I don't think 'proper physics' would fit in very well'.
