I want to reference a company name using BibTeX:

@book{CUDA,
  author    = {NVIDIA Corporation},
  title     = {NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide},
  publisher = {NVIDIA Corporation},
  year      = {2007}
}

But the entry keeps showing up N. Corporation. Is there a way to get the full author name to show up? I'm currently using the siam BibTEX style.

Just enclose the the author field in another set of braces:

@book{CUDA, 
   author = {{NVIDIA Corporation}}, 
   title = {NVIDIA CUDA Compute Unified Device Architecture Programming Guide}, 
   publisher = {NVIDIA Corporation}, 
   year = {2007}
}

Enclosing in braces will also make BibTeX obey the capitalization. –  Kit Feb 11 '11 at 4:42
    
Thanks that solved it! –  aterrel Feb 11 '11 at 5:25
    
@Kit - Making BibTeX obey capitalization by enclosing the material in an extra pair of curly braces is mainly of relevance for the title field. To the best of my knowledge, no BibTeX style messes with the capitalization of names in the author and editor fields. –  Mico Jun 23 at 8:08
