(b) it provides in-line citations from reliable sources for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons-science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines

Could do with some more inline citations

(c) it contains no original research


3. Broad in its coverage[edit]

(a) it addresses the main aspects of the topic

Goes into detail but I can't see anything that's obviously unnecessary.


4. Neutral[edit]

It represents viewpoints fairly and without bias.

no problems

It does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.

several editors working on this with no edit warring

8. Notes for the Editor[edit]

  • More inline citations
  • Separate notes and citations
    This appears to have been already done. Sławomir Biały (talk) 20:19, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
    The notes section expands on the information given in the article (i.e. notes) and gives references for individual material (i.e. references). There is then a reference section which gives details on the books referenced. --tb240904 Talk Contribs 17:32, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

What's the status on the review? No updates on this page in nearly a month. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 04:57, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
I have been out of town, and apparently the only one around with an interest in getting this GA to go through. Give me a week or so, and I will bring it into shape. Sławomir Biały (talk) 21:07, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
This review has been going on for far too long. All editors involved should make every effort to close this review as soon as possible. Also, keep in mind that we have special citation guidelines for math-related articles. Edge3 (talk) 15:14, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
Agreed, it should be closed one way or the other within the next few days. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 17:53, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
I have left another note on the reviewer's talk page. Jezhotwells (talk) 19:48, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
OK, as the reviewer is not responding and as I personally don't feel capable of reviewing this. I am going to close it as a failed nomination now. Jezhotwells (talk) 01:59, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
I have renominated, with a timestamp one hour later to allow this keep its place in the queue. Jezhotwells (talk) 02:27, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
I appologise for not responding but my home computer is currently unable to connect to the internet and I was unable to access my user talk page due to my school's firewall. I only had concerns about the references/notes sections but I see the article has been reviewed by another editor and passed. --tb240904 Talk Contribs 17:32, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
