I have here some of my own published papers in their original TeX form. I don't know if this is a violation of copyright. (Probably is, but everyone seems to do it. That makes it OK, right? :-) )

What do people expect to find here? papers? preprints? half-baked ideas? I've got 'em all; let me know what you think ought to be here. I guess my intention for now is to put TeX files only, which will limit me mostly to things which actually made it into print recently.

- recursion -- n divides the nth term in a linear recurrence (NOT)
- Rational Triangles -- are there infinitely many triangles with rational-length sides and the same area?

Other pages at my own web site you may find of interest:

- My home page is just a short introduction to the pages I maintain
- I keep a large set of pages which provide a thematic introduction to the subject areas of modern mathematics, complete with answers to thousands of more or less common questions.
