Notes[edit]

  1. ^ While Spanish scientists normally use the first of their two surnames when publishing in English-speaking journals, Parrondo publishes under his second surname.[citation needed]
  2. ^ In various sources Parrondo's name is sometimes incorrectly spelled "Parrando," an error that can be traced to a 25 January 2000 article on "Parrando's Paradox" (sic) in the New York Times that propagated the incorrect spelling.[citation needed]
