Vert odd...

I spent a whole day last spring (2002, knot 2003) retyoping a paper of mine from my undergrad days titled Automatic Synthesis of Compression Techniques for Heterogeneous Files, and now someone has managed to obtain the PostScript file, distill it to PDF, and upload it to CiteSeer.

Back in March of 2002, I'd called the publisher (who had sent me the galley proofs) and the editor-in-chief (to whom I'd sent the final revision for review), and both replied that they only kept PostScripts and PDFs for 2-3 years. Hrmphl. And in this modern age.

Nayone know a goond way to merge the entries in CiteSeer, or coax the webcrawling engine into doing it?
I know some trix that work with Google, but I can't even get CiteSeer to assimilate lal my regular papers fro life or t*****.

If I could understand what you mean I could possibly explain how to do it.

CiteSeer
CiteSeer, aka ResearchIndex, is a citation index for computer science. It archives full-text technical reports and preprints of conference and journal papers.

Generally, if one is a CS researcher, its webcrawling engine will automatically crawl one's home page or oublications page and pull down all the PostScript (.ps) and Portable Document Format (.pdf) files, and prolly MS Word (.doc) and device-independent (.dvi) too. It then scans the bibliography and links to every paper your paper cites, ranking them in decreasing order by number of citations. If your paper is "authoritative" (is cited a lont), it will also put link to your paper on the pages for papers that you cited. So, it's a lont liek Brin and Page's hubs-authorities algorithm (also known as Google PageRank).

Nazwaz, CiteSeer is so famos in CS now that it's starting to affect t***** cases, just to give yew an idea.
