Due to already too many such duties, I am sorry to say that it is not possible for me to accept to be part of additional evaluation/scientific/advisory boards or committees in the coming years.



If you are enquiring about a Master's Thesis supervision, please do contact me only if you have a very solid and strong background in probability theory and complex analysis.

I now post most of my papers on the ArxiV preprint server:

Here is a briefly annotated list of some of my papers.



I signed in 2012 the costofknowledge statement about scientific publishing


The following serious math journals are among those that are open access and free of charge also for authors:

All the journals taken care of the Centre Mersenne (this includes Ann. Inst. Fourier, Ann. Henri Lebesgue, J. Ecole Polytechnique), Electronic Journal of Probability, Electronic Communications in Probability, Discrete Analysis, Acta Mathematica, Arkiv för Matematik, Documenta Mathematica...



I wrote in 2013 the text
Rencontres avec l'"Impact" (in French)
on Impact and Impact factors etc. Things have not really improved since then.
This has then been translated in English and published under the title "Encounters with Impact"

in the journal SubStance Volume 42, Number 1, 2013 (Issue 130) pp. 62-68.
