I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998 and I have been teaching since then at SUNY Oneonta for 1 year, at Shepherd University for 5 years, at Tennessee Tech for 2 years, at Lane College for 1 year, and this year I taught at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. My research interests include Representation Theory and Combinatorics.

Many popular online sites, such as OEIS, for example, have online refereed journals.

When this site was in beta, this idea also was suggested for Mapleprimes.

It would be great if it was finally implemented. There are enough people here now for a good editorial board. I suggest Robert Israel as the Chief Editor.

This topic was discussed many times.

Originally I didn't think that it is a good idea, because who would write the original basic stuff? Maple is a complicated program, and even the basic stuff would cover thousands of pages. The competent people don't have time for that, and what incompetent people can write would be interesting only for them and not for anybody else.

Now I got another idea - the basic stuff can be created from the Maple help pages converted to html. But that could be done only in Maplesoft supported wiki. On this site, for instance.

Filter and Ignore list are standard features of many forums and newsreaders. For example, when I want to look through the Maple newsgroup, I use a newsreader with my Ignore list and see only 3-5 posts instead of 3 or 5 thousands posts without that.

The situations on this site is not that bad, but still there are some users trying to spread their incompetence across the Universe, and I cannot use my newsreader for filtering them out. Could it be possible to implement that feature - Ignore lists in the next major release of Mapleprimes?

Sloane's On-line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences has the following entry:

A110375  Numbers n such that Maple 9.5, Maple 10 and Maple 11 give the wrong answers for the number of partitions of n.   
 11269, 11566, 12376, 12430, 12700, 12754, 15013, 17589, 17797, 18181, 18421, 18453, 18549, 18597, 18885, 18949, 18997

I wonder whether that can be extended to Maple 12 as well (I don't have it to check.)



Visual Studio Express which is a small version of Visual Studio available for free download, has appeared to be very successful in 2 directions. First, it practically killed all other C and C++ compilers for Windows, as well as decreased number of people using cygwin and mingwin. Second, many people downloaded it and used it for some time at home, have made their companies to buy Professional or Team Suite versions for their work. It started with VS 2005 and continues now with VS 2008.
