paper accepted!

I just got an email that my paper was accepted to Acta Sci Math (Szeged), after not even making it to a reviewer in two other journals.

Here is the review of my paper:

The research of this paper began in this Acta by a famous result of Fáry on estimating the length of a curve by its total curvature.

Its actual result is an upper estimate of the difference of lengths of curves by their total curvatures and Fréchet distance. This upper bound is a huge improvement over a recent result of Cohen-Steiner and Edelsbrunner in the sense that it does not depend on the dimension, although it becomes better than its predecessor only for dimensions more than $6$. Surprisingly, the clear and clever proof eventually uses the original result in dimension $3$ and in fact gives a general method to eliminate the dimensions from such estimates.

Although it could be shortened, the paper is well written and the only two things I would ask for is to completely ignore the very detailed, but obvious calculation of $r(n)$ in the introduction and to give a bit more emphasis on the observation proved in the first paragraph of the subsection of “Fréchet distance in the limit”.
