I suspect that not all North American mathematicians can be found in the CML. And I know for sure that some people can be found in the CML, even if they are not North American.

@geraldedgar: Unfortunately, in my case this doesn't work: this person seems to be retired, because he is not contained in the list of faculty. Anyway, thank you very much, I already sent a message ...

If you have a university you suspect is the one: Nowadays there is probably a university web site, and it probably contains a list of faculty (either one list for the university, or lists for separate departments). So even if there is no email for your mathematician, at least you will know you have the right place. Or the wrong place.

Deane, thank you very much. Of course I use some of these possibilities. If a paper is recent, then usually it is indeed quite easy to find the author, but I face great problems if the paper is old. ...

I'm sure you've thought about these things already but here are some things that come to mind:a) If the mathematician has published recently, check the paper for an address or email.b) If you know ...
a) If the mathematician has published recently, check the paper for an address or email. b) If you know where the mathematician's professional position is, send a letter to the address there c) If you know people working in the field, ask them if they know the person d) If the mathematician is North American, you can look here: http://www.ams.org/cml/ e) If not, there might be something analogous elsewhere]]>

Dear colleagues,I wonder if there is a way to contact a mathematician (for example, somebody whom I cite in my papers), if there are no mentionings of him in internet. I suppose this is a usual ...
I wonder if there is a way to contact a mathematician (for example, somebody whom I cite in my papers), if there are no mentionings of him in internet. I suppose this is a usual problem for all of us, and perhaps there exist standard procedures for finding people?
