Here’s an amusing consequence of the SR paper I posted to arxiv on change of basis (I’d intended to try to see if this was publication worthy, but forgot about it).
I don’t have any intention of paying for publication, when the publisher offers no peer review, nor any mention that basic editing services would be provided. I’d be curious if you’d be able to write something that was complete garbage and have this publisher print it.
