Thank you for the link.

Actually, I had encountered this site earlier, but it had caused my
browser to hang, and I had been unable to download the file earlier.

For some reason, control-clicking the button to download thirty
seconds after visiting the site only causes the thirty-second-waiting
process to repeat in another tab, where the button must be clicked (as
opposed to control-clicked) thereafter in order to cause a download in
the same tab.

Then the .djvu-suffixed file downloads, but viewing the file requires
installing a DjVu file viewer; I downloaded and installed DjVuLibre
3.5.22+DjView 4.5 from SourceForge at

Then the file opens.  The file is approximately 731 KB, as opposed to
5.067 MB for the PDF version of the same content (available by
clicking on the "CACHED" button at CiteSeerX at
