There's nothing particularly notable about him beyond what is expected of a research professor. Note that this article is mostly written by someone who has coauthored various papers with him. Dtm1234 (talk) 18:07, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I am also nominating the following pages for similar reasons. Note that all of these pages have been tagged for speedy deletion in the past. Dtm1234 (talk) 14:51, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Something weird is going on with Shriram Krishnamurthi: according to the article history it was tagged for CSD A7 from 2007 to 2011... Question to the nominator: Just wondering: according to your contribution history, this AfD is your first contribution to Wikipedia. AFD is not a simple process (and combining multiple articles into a single AfD even less). Have you contributed to WP before and if yes, under what user name? --Guillaume2303 (talk) 15:06, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes, I used to be Dantheman531, however, I have forgotten the password to that account and also the email address that I used for that account as I have not logged in to it for a very long time. Dtm1234 (talk) 15:17, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
OK, thanks for explaining! --Guillaume2303 (talk) 15:36, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep Pretty notable for a programming language theorist. Author of several often cited papers in the field [1]. —Ruud 16:16, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete. Being widely cited doesn't make a person notable. We need reliable 3rd party sources about Robert Findler. The other two AfDs need their own nominations. Kaldari (talk) 20:37, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • "Being widely cited doesn't make a person notable." I don't think Wikipedia:Notability (academics) completely agrees with you on that point. —Ruud 22:20, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
    • We don't need reliable sources about the irrelevancies of his personal life, what we need are reliable sources for his professional life — what he has contributed to academic knowledge, etc. But that's exactly what many of those thousands of citations to his work are. —David Eppstein (talk) 23:25, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep and/or speedy close. They each have multiple publications with over 100 citations each, enough to convince me of a pass of WP:PROF#C1. And despite working together sometimes they are on the faculties of three different universities and have many distinct publications, making a single AfD problematic and justifying a speedy close on procedural grounds. The sourcing for all three articles needs improvement and there is some anecdotal material in Matthew Flatt that would probably be better removed, but those aren't reasons for deletion. —David Eppstein (talk) 23:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
