I am enclosing the formulae which Ralph and I obtained for the "F" and "G" integrals.
As you can readily see, the formulae are quite complex due to the term containing
the quintuple summation. By algebraic manipulation it may be possible to considerably
simplify the formulae. However, Ralph and I have decided to postpone doing any further
work on the problem. He wishes to devote all his time to studying for the doctorate
examination and I wish to devote all my time to completing my thesis. We hope to continue
about the beginning of June.
Last Friday and Saturday Cal Tech held its annual exhibit day. While I was setting
up the crystal structure exhibit on Thursday a "Star-News" photographer came in the
room and insisted on taking the picture which I am enclosing.
I hope that you and Mrs. Pauling are having a most enjoyable time. I want you to
express my appreciation to Mrs. Pauling for her kind note thanking me for the box
of candy which I presented to you both.
I shall appreciate any comments which you may make concerning the formulae.
