Procedure to publish a technical report.
1. When your report is finished contact me (ami@gmu.edu) for a TR number.
2. I will assign you one provisionally.
3. You then incorporate it into the report and send me two items:
1. The pdf file of the report.
2. A bibtex entry for your paper (see below).
4. If I don't get these two items within 48 hours, I will assume that you changed your mind about publishing this report at this time (e.g., you discovered a bug in your proof), and I will retract the number I gave you (I might then assign it to the next request). This retraction is intended to prevent gaps in the sequence of TR numbers, when promised reports are not delivered.
5. If I get these two items within 48 hours, I will publish your report as soon as I can.

The bibtex entry should follow this example (i.e., edit it to reflect your submission).

Computing the Minkowski sums of rotating objects has always
been done naively by re-computing every Minkowski sum from
scratch. The correspondences between the Minkowski sums are
typically completely ignored. We propose a method, called
DYMSUM, that can efficiently update the Minkowski sums of
rotating convex polyhedra. We show that DYMSUM is
significantly more efficient than the traditional approach,
in particular when the size of the input polyhedra are large
and when the rotation is small between frames. From our
experimental results, we show that the computation time of
the proposed method grows slowly with respect to the size of
the input comparing to the naive approach.}
