Additional information and Frequently Asked Questions

The RAAG Preprint Server helps to inform the mathematical public about recent research results in the area of Real Algebraic and Analytic Geometry. Authors can post their latest preprints on the server, which gives them an opportunity to announce their results informally and as early as possible, even if they are in preliminary form. Entries are not reviewed and can be updated as often as the authors wish. AUTHORS ARE EXPLICITLY ENCOURAGED TO SEND REVISIONS whenever this becomes necessary or seems desirable.

The server accepts papers in the areas of

The MAILING LIST (http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/raag/index.php?section=mailinglist)

To inform the RAAG community about new preprints, the server provides a mailing list that notifies subscribers by email about new preprints and revised versions of items already on the server. NOTE: The mailing list is NOT a forum for discussion, subscribers will not be swamped by a lot of messages. Experience shows that about two messages are sent every month, of course depending on the number of submissions.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A PAPER HAS BEEN SUBMITTED OR UPDATED?

  1. Usually the paper is displayed/updated on the preprint server within two days after submission. The server displays the dvi, postscript and pdf versions of the preprint, depending on what the author sends. If a tex-file was sent, then this tex-file itself will NOT be shown on the server.
  2. All authors of the paper will be informed that their work is available on the server or has been updated.
  3. The subscribers of the mailing list are informed about the new preprint or the revised version.

HOW TO USE THE SERVER FOR A PARTICULAR PAPER?

Each paper is displayed on the server with an ordinal number that is determined by the order of the INITIAL submission. This number NEVER changes, even if a paper is revised or withdrawn. The link of a preprint can be sent to other people, and it will always give them the most up to date information about the paper. For example, the link http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/raag/index.php?preprint=0015 always points to the preprint that was submitted as no 15. If the author should withdraw the paper entirely then the link will lead to a message that the paper has been withdrawn. If the author wishes, this message does not give any information about the identity of the paper.
The web address of a particular paper can be determined by clicking on the title of the paper on the Server's homepage. Then the address is shown in the address bar of the web browser.

HOW TO WITHDRAW A PAPER?

If they wish, authors can remove papers from the server. The papers can be replaced by a reference to a publication, or they can be withdrawn entirely. To withdraw a paper, send an e-mail to .
