Papers and Children

On this webpage I try to describe how children effect publishing in my field of mathematics (where publication rates are low, papers are long, and referees often take 2 years), or at least my own publishing. Publication dates are misleading when papers are refereed for over a year and people have often said to me they never saw a gap in my publishing when I had kids. In fact the gaps are there, but the effect of random refereeing time has averaged out the appearance of my papers. Here is a tale of how the research actually progressed since I graduated through the births of three children, tenure and promotion. My homepage is here.

The dates in parenthesis indicate the date the preprint was posted on the arxiv.
