Why is this the Sokh a tsky theorem when the bio of the mathematician is for Yulian Vasilievich Sokh o tski? Brews ohare (talk) 18:47, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Because his name is spelled both those ways, and many others besides. But when people refer to this theorem in english-language books and papers, this seems to be the most common spelling. (You can check by google or literature searching, maybe you'll find I'm wrong.) :-) --Steve (talk) 18:57, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Yea, I might have been wrong. At any rate, both spellings are now there, along with some extra references. Thanks for the idea. --Steve (talk) 20:50, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
according to the book 'Blanchard, Bruening: Mathematical Methods in Physics (Birkhauser 2003)' at Example 3.3.1 4. this formula/theorem is also called 'Sokhotski-Plemelji formula'. Maybe one should mention this here.

Support, there is only one or two sources for "Sokhotski-Weierstrass" (I don't count the arxiv article, and I fear that Zagoskin and Monarkha copied terminology from each other). It was mentioned above that Blanchard and Bruening is a reliable source for Sokhotski-Plemelj. So until now, I was neutral between Sokhotski-Plemelj and Sokhotski-Weierstrass. Now Pym1507 has given solid reasons to prefer the former. OK with me! --Steve (talk) 02:34, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
Not yet Let's see the promised references first; it is not uncommon for notation to differ between Russian and Western languages. SeptentrionalisPMAnderson 22:57, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
