TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Horace] Lamb, Chairman of the Mathematics Committee and FRS
Date15 March 1923
DescriptionInforms Professor [Horace] Lamb that the reports on [Charles Edward] Inglis' paper, 'Stress distribution in a rectangular plate having two opposing edges sheared in opposite directions', and on [G. C.] Steward's paper, 'Abberation-diffraction effects', were both favourable. Asks if the former might be passed under Standing Order 43 and suggests asking the Committee via correspondence for permission to pass the latter. Also informs Professor Lamb of two new papers that they have received, one by [William Michael Herbert] Greaves, 'A certain family of periodic solutions of differential equations, with an application to the triode oscillator', and one by [Godfrey Harold] Hardy and [John Edensor] Littlewood, 'Lindelof's hypothesis concerning the riemann zeta-function'. Asks what should be done with each.
