I found a review for Edwards' Divisor Theory by R. Bölling in, of all places, Biometrical Journal 33(4):516, 1991, doi:10.1002/bimj.4710330421. However my campus' site subscriptions don't seem to give me access to this one. Can anyone else read it and summarize it for our article? Alternatively, maybe there is a decent review published elsewhere? I suppose we can always just go with Ştefănescu's review in MathSciNet, MR1200892, and there's a little material about this in the Whiteman prize citation, but it's frustrating knowing about the existence of a source and not being able to use it. —David Eppstein (talk) 01:28, 1 February 2010 (UTC)


What is the relevance of his being married to a breast cancer survivor? Seems a little off-topic to me. --Matt Westwood 10:10, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

To me, the intent of this sentence is "His wife is also notable. Here is what she is notable for." —David Eppstein (talk) 14:53, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough, but thought I'd ask, because to me this sentence jarred somewhat. No worries. --Matt Westwood 22:35, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
