Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Smooth structure, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Transition function (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Your 4 consecutive reverts are not consistent with wiki policy and have been reported here]. Tkuvho (talk) 12:17, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Reference in Unbounded operator addition[edit]

Your addition to Unbounded operator included: ''T'' is ''self-adjoint''.<ref name="Kato-5.3.3" />, but not the full reference. What is the book or article referred to? Thanks. StarryGrandma (talk) 19:34, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

The red message at the bottom of the page is automatically generated when the reference name in <ref name="Kato-5.3.3" /> doesn't have a complete reference somewhere else in the article. I've replaced it with <ref>{{ harvnb |Kato|1995| loc=5.3.3 }}</ref> following usage in the article. It would be enough to use <ref>Kato 1995, 5.3.3</ref>.
I also replaced
  • Kato, Tosio (1995), Perturbation theory for linear operators, Classics in Mathematics. SpringerVerlag. ISBN 3-540-58661-X
  • {{ citation| last=Kato | first=Tosio | title=Perturbation theory for linear operators | year=1995 | series=Classics in Mathematics |chapter=Chapter 5. Operators in Hilbert Space |publisher=Springer-Verlag |isbn=3-540-58661-X}}
to match the references used in the article. See Wikipedia:Citing sources/Further considerations#Using template Harvnb. I enjoyed figuring this out. It always gives me a bit of trouble. But the references get internal links this way. StarryGrandma (talk) 20:08, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
