Publication information: We submitted this to the American Mathematical Monthly, but it was rejected (if you are interested you can click here for the referee reports and read the editor's comments below). We are trying to work out where to send it next.
================================================================ From email@example.com Thu May 11 21:45:33 2006 Date: Thu, 11 May 2006 13:44:40 -0400 From: American Mathematical Monthly <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Cc: American Mathematical Monthly <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Submission to the Monthly #06-0226 Dear Professor Schiff, I am writing about your paper "The Asymptotics of Factorials, Binomial Coefficients and Catalan Numbers" (manuscript #06-0226), which you submitted to the American Mathematical Monthly. Attached please find the referees' reports. Although both referees have positive things to say about this paper, one of them thinks that it doesn't belong in the Monthly. Even the referee who recommends publication notes that the paper is fairly specialized and technical, and says that it will only grab the interest of a limited number of readers. Based on these reservations from the referees, my conclusion is that the Monthly is not the right journal for this paper, and I cannot accept it for publication. I hope you'll be able to publish it in another journal--it deserves to be published. Although we are unable to accept your paper for publication, please accept our thanks for thinking of the Monthly. Sincerely, Daniel J. Velleman Editor-Elect ======================================================================
