The question

Computing Gauss Legendre Quadrature for Large N

was voluntarily removed by its author, after I implied (with a link to Wikipedia) that the answer was trivial and well-known. I have since discovered that the answer is non-trivial, highly interesting, and the subject of a very recent paper. Is it possible to undelete the question?

I would message the author, but I can't find his/her name.

    $\begingroup$ Just comment somewhere where they'd be notified, and it is not too intrusive, such as meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/2235/… I am rather against arbitrarily undoing self-deletions (even though the current case seems relatively non-problematic). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I have left a comment at that post linking to this meta post. The author seems to tune into MO with some regularity, and so should see this note soon. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @quid Thanks, but I don't know where to comment since I cannot see (and don't recall) who the author is. I am indeed hoping the author will see this and undo it. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 29, 2015 at 16:36
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I understood this as a possibility, which is why I gave you a link where you could comment (perhaps I did not make this quite clear though, sorry about that). OP of the meta post I linked, is OP of the question you linked. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Well, I'm curious to know more - it's open to the public again. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Would you not close it, if it was found out that the answer is on Wiki? $\endgroup$
