I was trying to cite some of the bibliographical references here, and I had some trouble locating them on MathSciNet. As far as I can tell, the following changes are in order:

The paper by Kantorovich and Rubinstein from 1957 is titled *On a space of completely additive functions* on MathSciNet, rather than *On *the* space...*.

Similarly, Dobrushin's 1970 paper appears as "Definition of a system of random variables by means of conditional distributions" in that database rather than "Prescribing a system...".

- Yes. Thank you for the correction. Probably, the reason is, that Math Review (now MathSciNet) published first a tentative translation of the title, and later, after reviewing, a final one.
- And please sign your messages (on talk pages) by four tildas: ~~~~.
