Edward Lindsay Ince FRSE (30 November 1891 Amblecote, Staffordshire, England – 16 March 1941 Edinburgh, Scotland) was a British mathematician who worked on differential equations, especially those with period coefficients such as the Mathieu equation and the Lamé equation. He introduced the Ince equation, a generalization of the Mathieu equation. He won the Smith's Prize in 1918 and was elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1923, which awarded him the Makdougall Brisbane Prize for 1938–1940 for his work on periodic Lamé functions (Ince 1940a, 1940b).
