In 1973, Neil Sloane's book "A Handbook of Integer Sequences" was less than
an inch thick and weighed about 1 pound.
In 1995, the Sloane/Plouffe book "The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences"
was slightly over an inch thick and weighed 2 pounds.
Now, if printed double sided on 24# paper, OEIS would be about 40 feet long
and weigh over a 1000 pounds.
Keep up the good work!
On January 15-18, 2014, OEIS will be exhibiting at the "2014 Joint
Mathematics Meeting" in Baltimore, Maryland. See
We have 3 signed copies of the 1973 book that will be prizes in a contest.
We hope to see you there!
