Levi-Civita paper title[edit]

All of the reference on the web have the "g" spelling, not the "q" spelling.

Do you have a hardcopy of the original? What is your reference for you spelling? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alan U. Kennington (talkcontribs) 10:09, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

The original is available online. It is clear that the correct spelling is "conseguente".

Please revert your change. Alan U. Kennington (talk) 10:37, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Dear Alan, thanks for msg. Well, not yet. It is not so important, but please cf. ref. about this paper at page 420 of William M. Boothby, An introduction to differentiable manifolds and Riemannian geometry, (1986), Academic Press, where one reads 'consequente'. It is not a matter of "spelling", anyway.

Thank-you for responding. Yes, many people have made the same error. It also appears in Walter A. Poor "Differential geometric structures", 1981, page 321. It is an understandable error because in many European languages, the original Latin spelling is retained in their derived words, and the letter "q" looks very similar to a "g". And Italian is not very well known by most mathematicians. So the error seems to have propagated. But the original facts do seem to be very clear. Springer has the paper online, which you can preview the first 2 pages of. It is also available from the http://mathematica.sns.it/ web site, which I have also downloaded. Alan U. Kennington (talk) 10:56, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

But, in fact, at that time one could use both words. The modern way is "conseguente". There are many words like these. Mgvongoeden (talk) 11:05, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but the question is not whether it was possible. The question is what was the correct title of the article. And the evidence is crystal clear that it was "conseguente".

Another little note ....
You're right about old Italian having that spelling. http://www.classicitaliani.it/decamero/01_11.htm

Boccaccio used "consequente". That's how it was in Latin anyway. But I personally doubt that Levi-Civita was still using 14th century spelling in 1917. Alan U. Kennington (talk) 11:11, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Before reverting, please go to the Library. The original paper is not to be considered that in http://mathematica.sns.it/media/volumi/433/LeviCivita_4.pdf Mgvongoeden (talk) 11:30, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

I do not have access to a university library right now. Do you have a photocopy of the original paper? You are right that the sns.it reprint is not definitive. But the Springer version online is definitive. Could you please go to a library to check? I simply can't do that. I think the Springer online version is conclusive. Alan U. Kennington (talk) 11:40, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Not now. Many years ago, I had it. But please post me the Springer link and I shall buy that paper. Thank you. Mgvongoeden (talk) 11:45, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

I posted it above already. And now I have put a screenshot on my web site.

Does that look like the article which you saw, in the same typeface? I didn't want to upload this to wikipedia in case there might be some copyright issue with it, although copyright should have expired by now!

Here's the link I used.

OK, Alan. I did revert my change! Thank you. Mgvongoeden (talk) 12:48, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

And thank-you too. It's been a pleasure communicating with you.

Speedy deletion nomination of Louise Kaplan[edit]

Hello Mgvongoeden,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Louise Kaplan for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.
