For   the   values   of   -jr~^d^/dx   we   find   from   (91),   (90),   (92 kb = ^, 1, V2, 2:

These numbers correspond to the value of "W expressed in (82).
We have now, in pursuance of our method, to seek a second solution another form of W. The first which suggests itself with M* = 1 cloei answer the purpose. For (81) then gives as the leading term
