Author Comments:
Publication began with volume 1, number 1, in 1971. The journal was published quarterly through the end of 1975, then eight times yearly until the end of 1996, and monthly since the beginning of 1997.
The publisher has a World Wide Web site for the journal at
with mirrors at
This journal is unusual in that some volumes span two years, some issues are assigned two or more consecutive issue numbers, and no months were prominently associated with issue numbers until about volume 11. [The year/volume confusion is rampant in databases, and took a great deal of tedious editing and checking to correct.] Citations in the journal to papers in the journal normally just give volume, pages, and year data.
Almost all articles are published in English, but 33 are in German, and 18 in French, and none of those are more recent than 1986. English translations are supplied for all of the French and German titles. In later issues, the journal covers and title pages include English title translations and abstracts; the author of this bibliography will be grateful for improved translations of early titles from readers of this file.
Cross-references are supplied for all comments, corrigenda, errata, and remarks, so that citing one will automatically provide citations of the others.
About a fifth of the entries below have missing issue months; citations in the journal itself do not normally give that information, and some major databases also regrettably omit it. All journal issues from at least volume 3 on carry month, and sometimes day, information on the cover, although in a few cases the library volumes that I consulted had been carelessly trimmed during binding, and that data was lost. I have supplied month and day values for all entries for which I have reliable data.
The journal Web site HTML files contain ``online publication'' day, month, and year data, but it is unclear whether this is the same as that for the paper edition. I have collected this data and included it in a table in the bibliography below.
This bibliography was prepared by merging data from the TeX Users Group bibliography archive, the BibNet Project archive, the Compendex database, the OCLC Contents1st database, the huge Karlsruhe computer science bibliography archive, the MathSciNet database, and the journal Web pages. Questionable values have been resolved by searches in the Zentrallblat fuer Mathematik database, and by consulting original journal issues [only volumes 3 (1973) – 28 (1991) were available to the author, because of library journal budget cuts, sigh...].
