Locking the article[edit]

Considering that Jenny Harrison (it's a Berkeley IP, which has only edited her page and this, it's clearly her) keeps adding herself to this article, I suggest this article require registration. I'm actually feel embarrassed as a math student at Cal that a member of the faculty member would behave in this manner. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 169.229.108.63 (talk) 06:56, 8 March 2013 (UTC)


Citation of Tibor Radó's paper[edit]

I got the new information from here which would seem to be reasonably authoritative. HTH HAND —Phil | Talk 17:29, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Except that it's wrong! I got my info when I entered it, from looking in the journal using JSTOR after having found it using MathSciNet. If you look at that webpage you cite, the next paper is supposedly in the same volume but one year later, which is incorrect. Volume 31 was in 1930 and Volume 32 was part of 1931. The webpage also omits that it is the Annals, second series, which I've added back. --C S (Talk) 19:54, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Curses and black pudding! Thanks for the catch…—Phil | Talk 08:46, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

General clean up[edit]

What are k and n? This seems to be a very important mathematical problem/concept but I think this article doesn't do it justice, and at the least, it doesn't completely explain itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.163.24.15 (talk) 09:12, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
