Upcoming paper

November 19th, 2021, 2:47 pm

I am, I think, very near to completing my life's work so far.

After I get some feedback from a couple reviewers, I'll submit a paper to Wilmott Magazine. You'll want to have a copy of that issue.

If Wilmott declines to publish -- it's long for a magazine article -- I'll arrange here to make the paper available to anyone interested.

Salient points of the paper:
  • Number of types of birds referenced: 3 (parrot, hummingbird, buzzard)
  • References to Lord of the Rings: 1
The paper is more designed for a purely academic publication, but those are so much of a pain in the ass that I'm too disinterested in and too old anyway to care about academia, and it's already skirting the limits of readable English without being shoe-horned into some journal's standard writing style. And did I mention the reference to Lord of the Rings -- ?

Cheers, everyone.

 (parrot, hummingbird, buzzard)

parrot = apply to most academics  (>99.99% as a fact)
hummingbird = 360 species so paper could still be rich in flavours.
buzzard = Mr Wilmott  ?
Lord of the Rings: Prof. Gandalf?

(completing my life's work so far: volume 1 of 9)

"You'll want to have a copy of that issue." in particular the cover picture!

We've run articles on negative probabilities, space-time finance, we had one article titled "Sexy and Topless," that caused Deutsche to stop their subscription. (It was about a convertible car.) We've designed book covers for Wiley (actually one including a parrot!) that they rejected in favour of something blueish with some equations on it. (You don't climb the 17 levels of middle management at Wiley by showing any originality!) The only problem would be, as the actress said to the bishop, if it's too long you'll have to put it somewhere else!

All right; I'll count on the people who know how to put together a magazine issue to figure out something.

"it's long for a magazine article "  "a magazine issue to figure out something." 

Format big enough as it is, so tips to the Editor of the Magazine: LaTeX : {\scriptsize }  function!
