Thank you for showing Phillipe our forum and my JV Collection page. I hope
we shall have him soon in our midst. Please show him my answer to his email.

Thank you for the complements. I am trying to do my best to serve not as an
authoritative source to JV knowledge, which I am not, but just as a guide to
show you where such sources might be. For example, there are in my list few JV
bibliographies - only recently Garmt put one (which is not complete yet) in his
JV page - we also have Dennis Kytasaari's, Olivier Sacleux, and François-Xavier
Féghali . Each one has done a very nice work, but I suspect - non
authoritative. I would love to put in my collection an authoritative JV
bibliography and keep it up to date with your help and the help of the forum.
We certainly look forward having you and th members of the SJV (I have been a
member myself since 1979) in our forum.
All the best,
