Great idea to collect the pointers, btw!

Thanks Mihai. I added a link to your pdf file.

Thanks Olek. I added a link to your abstract.

Hello,

The tech report of our paper

“Distributed Computation in Dynamic Networks”

somehow got corrupted in the uploading process (all the math symbols disappeared). Could you please replace the link with the following link?

http://people.csail.mit.edu/rotem/dynamicgraphs.pdf

Many thanks,

Rotem

Thanks Rotem. I updated the link.

For Bürgisser and Cucker’s paper “Solving Polynomial Equations in Smoothed Polynomial Time and a Near Solution to Smale’s 17th Problem”, it corresponds to the paper “On a problem posed by Steve Smale on the arXiv, even though it has not the same title. Of course, I think the submitted paper is not exactly this one (the arXiv version seems too long for example). If you’re interested, the link :

Oops ! The link: http://arxiv.org/abs/0909.2114v3

Thanks. I added a link to this arXiv version.
