3-15-26. George Howard Darwin to H. Poincaré

Aug. 25.01

Newnham Grange–Cambridge

Dear Monsieur Poincaré,

Since I last wrote I have continued to work at my subject & have met with unexpected success. The most troublesome integrals disappear automatically and a number of others can be obtained rigorously without elliptic integrals. I have now arranged the work in a very convenient form & have started a professional computer at the integrals. The work will not be very long. It would be tedious though not difficult to express them all in E and F.

I find also that, by proper interpretation of the symbols and change of third harmonic to second, this result is applicable to this initial Jacobian considered as a deformation of an ellipsoid of revolution. I expect to have the result in a day or two, and if it is correct it seems to me absolutely impossible that I can be wrong in the problem of the pear.

It has been a very troublesome piece of analysis. I found it convenient to join part of my E2 to E1, then to join the other part to E3; to join E5 with part of E4. The remaining part of E4 is deducible by means of E3. All this was not discovered until I had made many trials & failures.

I look forward to your letter with much interest.

Yours sincerely,

G. H. Darwin
