How do they do it? No, really. How can some theorists be so prolific? I know they're not constrained by little things like having to get experiments to work, but surely it takes a certain amount of intellectual effort and creativity (or at least, supervision of students and postdocs, or correspondence with collaborators at other institutions) to produce a decent paper. At a little before the midpoint of the year, I can think of two CM theorists who have already produced, between the two of them, 23 preprints on the arxiv. That's something like one paper every 2.5 weeks for each of these people. Wow.
