  • To apply the method to the calculation of N n, it is necessary that we should be able to express N in the form A+a or Aa, where a is small in comparison with A, A" is easy to calculate and a/A is convenient as a multiplier.

  • From the series for G and H just obtained it is easy to verify that dH = - 7rvG, dv av -
