Somewhere in Israel, someone printed 50 copies

Published 2012-11-05 in sections English, Mathe.

Today, a small package was waiting for me at my door step, containing 52 printed and stapled copies of a paper that I wrote a while ago. To be more precise, two years ago, when I submitted the main results of my math Diploma Thesis to the Israel Journal of Mathematics. Next year at christmas eve, it was accepted and published online. And now, it seems, it finally went into print. So my paper now has page numbers and I have this pile of printouts that outnumbers the set of possibly interested readers by four dozens or more, and they would probably just download the online version instead of asking for this print out. This seems all very anachronistic to me.


Yeah, Christmas presents for all your beloved ones in one go!
