Subject: Update on Rejected Springer reprint request

In response to my posting of trouble getting a pdf file of one of my
Springer-published papers, I received over 200 messages of support and
advice. It is a great community!

M.J.D. (Mike) Powell was inspired to contact Springer, and in
response, I very promptly received the pdf file (which I have learned
that Springer is willing to supply to every author) and legal
permission to post it on my website (which Springer does not
ordinarily give). This gives me exactly what I wanted, and I am

I had sent my original request to Springer from the website of the
article, clicking the "permissions and reprints" button at Apparently,
this gives the wrong outcome if you are the author. The people who
processed my request did not forward it to the appropriate person, the
editor, found using the "contact" button on the journal's homepage.

A week after my posting, Claude Brezinski, editor-in-chief of
Numerical Algorithms, wrote me saying that my message might be
interpreted as criticism of him and the editorial board of the
journal. I meant no such criticism.

Elizabeth Loew of Springer has been very helpful in trying to solve
the problems and clarify the issues. It is in the current Springer
copyright agreement that authors cannot post the journal pdf files to
their own websites. Authors are allowed to email the pdf to

As Steve Vavasis noted last week, authors who care about making their
articles more available need to look into mechanisms such as the SPARC
copyright addendum:

many journals:

Subject: Translations of papers by Fredholm, Hilbert, and Schmidt

In the first decade of the last century Ivor Fredholm (1903), David
Hilbert (1904), and Erhard Schmidt (1907) published three papers that
together advanced the topic from studies of special cases to a well
developed general theory. I have prepared translations of these
papers along with a commentary. They are available at

I would appreciate any comments or errata.

an open day on 29 November for prospective applicants to its four-year
PhD in Mathematical Analysis course.

The Open Day will take place at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences,
Cambridge, from 2pm. Further information can be found on the CCA

The CCA offers a unique four-year PhD programme spanning pure,
stochastic, computational and applied analysis. We believe that
excellence in mathematical analysis requires a very broad basis and
our aim is to train students to be able and willing to deploy a very
wide range of techniques. This unique course has an emphasis on team
working and communication, alongside personal effort and excellence,
to foster a spirit of breadth and collaboration.

The centre is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences
Research Council (EPSRC). Student positions may be funded by either
EPSRC studentships, University of Cambridge Scholarships or other
