- Two forms are of the sameclass if one may be taken into the other by a linear trans formation withintegral coefficients and of determinant I; i. e. by a unimodular transformation.

- In the thesis the form (1, 5, 200) was erroneously reported to be regular. It fails to represent 44 and hence is irregular. The rest of the table has been checked and found to be correct.

For example Glaisher states the following inMessenger of Mathematics, new series vol. 6, (1877), p. 104: The excess of the number of representations of 8n+1 in the formx 2+4y 2+4z 2 withy andz even over the number of representations withy andz odd is zero if 8n+I is not a square and 2(−I)(s−1)/2 s if 8n+I=s 2.
