comment Command for Big Omega
There is no problem to be reproduced. The question is: Should it be typeset in italics or not? By the way, I get exactly what you got: it is not in italics and that is exactly what I see in the image in your answer.

comment What is the BibTeX category of a monograph that appeared in a series?
Excellent! I already upvoted your answer yesterday evening, many thanks. I decided to accept Bernard's answer because he "only" has 9.3k reputation points.

comment Command for Big Omega
Strange. If I use your command, the O is not typeset in italics exactly as you show in the image. I have checked both Introduction to Algorithms and The C++ Programming Language and they both typeset the big O in italics. Is it correct to typeset big O in italics?

@jon After having seen the .bst file, do you agree with any of the answers?

comment What is the BibTeX category of a monograph that appeared in a series?
@Bernard I don't really care how it appears. I just want to make sure that I am using the correct BibTeX category and either fix the warning or make sure it is safe to ignore it.

@Bernard Please check my update. I did not know that the .bst was important to figure out the BibTeX category, sorry.

@Bernard Thanks, that is good news. However, I will wait for a little while before accepting this as an answer; I hope you don't mind.

Yes, it compiles, but does it compile without any warning?

comment What is the BibTeX category of a monograph that appeared in a series?
According to the 3. page of the document they are "Series Editors" so I guess yes. The .bst is a given, I have to use it and I have no control over it. The number field doesn't seem right, I get "No. 5" in the generated bibliography and the original PDF file explicitly says "Volume 5". It is the volume of the series. The warning is annoying and it might signal that I am using the wrong category for the item, hence the question.

comment Parameter section similar to Input and Output
@GonzaloMedina Unfortunately, it is still messed up. I will submit a new question with an SSCCE (Short, Self Contained, Correct Example). I greatly appreciate your help so far.

Thanks, that solved it. Unfortunately another issue came up: Now the indentation is messed up but I will post another, separate question. Thanks again!

Done, thanks for your patience. It looks like a weird macro clash. Please check.

OK, working on it. I was hoping for a trivial mistake on my part that's already obvious from those lines... I will post an SSCCE soon.

Thanks. It almost OK but I get a superfluous colon; please check the updated question.

comment Abbreviated first names without spaces in between?
Since I already have to use a hacked BST anyway, one more hack really doesn't matter :) Option 1 works perfectly, thanks!

comment Braces in equations
"please always post complete documents showing all relevant packages loaded, not just fragments" Yes, I understand the importance of that. Unfortunately, it is not a very practical advice: I have to use some legacy style file doing all sorts of black magic. Believe me, nobody wants to deal with that legacy file. In any case, please add to your answer "By playing with the 10pt and 30pt in my answer you can make the brace any size at all.", I would like to accept it. Thanks!
