# Talk:Algebraic decidability of local classification problems

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

The references here use a style a little different to elsewhere: could I suggest that "[Ar70a] Arnold, V. I. Local problems ..." be changed to "[Ar1] V.I. Arnold, Local problems ..." etc., to preserve consistency. --Jjg 12:28, 28 April 2012 (CEST)

- I would do that if there were any chance to ensure indeed the uniformity/consistence of the referencing style. Alas, we have no [Wiki reference templates] that would keep a chance that one day everything will look uniform... Till then there will be always subtle differences: e.g. Last F. N. or F. N. Last? Italicize what part of the reference? Include ISBN or doi? Boldface volume? etc. Even MathSciNet produces references which differ in appearance, whether you select ASCII or other "text" formats.
