Issue 3 for 2020 published

Issue number 3 of Volume 50 of the journal has gone to print and is available electronically at the publisher’s site. This issue is the third of the Journal’s 50th year anniversary.

It has been available for about two weeks, but we held off announcing it as the publisher needed to correct errors in the presentation of the papers online. This hasn’t yet happened, but our presentation below is correct. Hopefully the publisher corrects this soon.

The articles in the issue are divided into a feature section and regular articles and book reviews:
