Dear Bruno,

I can't believe how ungrateful I've been! I'm only realizing today I never 
thanked you for your thorough reply! Thank you very, very much for your help!

Best regards,

How will your results be published?
  * If you only give a couple of copies of your university, your results will
    only be useful to your and your advisor(s).
  * If you publish the result in a journal, your results will only be useful to
    researchers at universities.
  * If you enhance an encyclopedia, such as Wikipedia, your results will be
    useful to the entire mankind!

I would like to encourage you to beef up these Wikipedia categories:
