Hi Xiao-Gang Wen,

The "Symmetry Protected Topological States of Interacting Fermions and Bosons" question was the result of a bug with the submission creation plugin. It seems that someone tried to submit a paper to the reviews section, but the bug somehow made it a question.

The bug is fixed now, and you can contribute to the discussion under the real submission:

I do like to be assigned as the author of the paper right away. Thanks!

That is great :-)

We originally thought, that people should (very formally) claim authorship of the imported papers


but then realized that this procedure is a bit too cumbersome and obstructive


So if you like, I could assign you as the author of the paper  right away, and to start the discussion, you could for example edit the submission to put down a more extended summary and additional comments/explanations than what can be found in the abstract on the ArXiv.

Thank you for let me know. I will be very happy to contribute to the discussion.

Hi Xiao-Gang Wen,

I am not sure, if you are still following the discussions on PhysicsOverflow, but it was suggested to import one of your papers into the Reviews section for discussion.

In case you are interested, a corresponding submission is now here

Hm, it seems I can not see what you have favorited. So maybe this would make a good feature request?

BTW for some reasons, I can not write a private message to you, but I have already complained about this in a bug meta question ...

Thanks for the nice words about my favorite list and in general  :-)

So maybe I could import them too (?) ...

On PhysicsOverflow, each question page has in the upper right corner a "star", which can be used to mark question as favorites.

Best Regards
