Dear Yaroslav and Nick!

Thank you very much for accepting our initiative. I studied the starting
points for contribution you mentioned and found that our code now is very
far from your standards. However this could be fixed. We will continue to
study your code and instructions.

What I plan for now is:
1) apply for some grant for support, possible Russian Foundation for Basic
Research or Russian Science Foundation (if you are not against this, I am
going to mention in the proposal, that you gave your acceptance for the
idea in general), this could give us some support in future, but even being
successful, only next year;
2) start from the only measure: adapted nonlinear Granger causality, for
which we published most of our papers;
3) slowly start making environment and speak to people from the team to
find, who is interested in this and can be responsible for some minor
tasks; since I do not have any actual "power" to press them, being the
ordinary university lecturer, I have to consult with everyone.

Best regards, Ilya Sysoev.
