  • [3] For instance, on one opening, p. 62-63, we find three ways of indicating the tail of an infinite series: $ + \cdots , + etc., \cdots $ ; on p. 53 we find $ + etc., \cdots , \cdots $ etc. Again we find $ O({x^r})$ signifying a polynomial of degree $ r$; elsewhere we find $ O(10)$. The reviewer would like to include a disclaimer on the part of SEAC to the discovery of the fifteenth Mersenne prime. That $ {2^{1279}} - 1$ is prime was established by SWAC (see MTAC, 6, 1952, p. 205), not by SEAC, as stated on p. 2.
