Letters of Recommendation
I am willing to write letters for deserving candidates, but please read
this before asking me for a letter.
Eschew Elsevier!
Two new(er) lows:
Elsevier
is now suing authors, and
Elsevier
sues ETH Zürich for distributing articles. Join the Elsevier
Boycott.
Older reasons to avoid Elsevier.
Elsevier
has published fake Journals,
more,
and
others that engage in unacceptable
editorial practices.
More details.

blog
and here is a

with more information.




I am an Associate Editor for the SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics, the
Canadian Journal of Mathematics, the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin, and the American
Mathematical Monthly.
