S. Ciurea, E. D. Demaine, C. E. P¸atrascu, and M. Patrascu, Finding a divisible pair, ACM SIGSAM Bull, 38(3) (2004), 98-100.
Probably the most troublesome part of this is the ACM SIGSAM Bull, as it can make finding the item difficult. To translate the abbreviation (to: Association for Computing Machinery: The Bulletin of the Special Interest Group on Symbolic and Algebraic Interpretation) try consulting the resources mentioned below or ask your Subject Librarian for help.
EndNote is the University of Bristol's recommended bibliographical management software, which can be used to collect, store, organise and manage references, and to output them as reference lists or bibliographies. A particularly useful function is 'Cite While You Write', enabling you to format Word documents, producing bibliographies and adding references within the text.
