wie es eigentlich gewesen

14 October, 2011

I’ve recently found myself wanting to cite a result, proved in an article of Leptin that formed part of some conference proceedings.

According to MathSciNet, the proceedings appeared as

Symposia Mathematica. Vol. XXII. (Italian)
Convegno sull’Analisi Armonica e Spazi di Funzioni su Gruppi Localmente Compatti. Tenuto al Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (INDAM), Roma, 24–31 Marzo, 1976. Academic Press, London-New York, 1977. 464 pp.

On the other hand, the “inter-library loan” copy that I’ve just received today claims that Symposia Mathematica XXII was published in 1981, not 1977.

Any suggestions as to how the discrepancy might appear? Anyone able to confirm, by checking a hard copy, which is the correct year?

(For more on the title of this post, especially if you know enough German to wonder about the missing auxiliary verb, see this blogpost.)

    Hello Yemon,

    Coincidentally, I happen to be referencing a paper of Ross from that same conference.

    I looked at the copy in the U of Windsor library. It was definitely published in 1977.

    The article of Leptin is on pages 267-281. So my guess is that the ’81 may have come from a page number.

    Best Wishes,
    -Ben

      Thanks, Ben. Given the less-than-ideal condition of the photocopy I’ve received – on a couple of pages, about 3ems worth of text is missing from the left-hand margin – it wouldn’t surprise me if someone misread and miswrote the “corrected” date.
