I'm using BibTex for my bibliography, for citing I'm using google scholar. I'm mainly having problems with math symbols: for example, one of the references is:

@incollection{deitmar2005schemes,  
  title={Schemes over$\backslash$  mathbb $\{$F$\}$ \_1},  
  author={Deitmar, Anton},  
  booktitle={Number fields and function fields—two parallel worlds},  
  pages={87--100},  
  year={2005},  
  publisher={Springer}    
}  

But it comes out wrong, the nice $\mathbb{F}_1$ math symbol is missing and what I see is only \mathbb {F}_1. Is the cite BibTeX of google scholar wrong?

Another problem: google scholar gives me this:  
@article{kurokawa2005zeta,  
  title={Zeta functions over $$\backslash$ mathbf $\{$F$\}$ \_1$},  
  author={Kurokawa, Nobushige and others},  
  journal={Proceedings of the Japan Academy, Series A, Mathematical   Sciences},  
  volume={81},  
  number={10},  
  pages={180--184},  
  year={2005},  
  publisher={The Japan Academy}  
}  

But the output is very messy: there is no math symbol for $\mathbb{F}_1$ and the "Proceedings of the Japan Academy, Series A, Mathematical Sciences" come out without spaces and actually runs out of the page.
Thank you all in advance!

  • Apart from the wrong formating (see egreg's answer) You need amssymb package for \mathbb – user31729 Jul 5 '15 at 21:01

Those references are badly formatted:

title={Schemes over {$\mathbb{F}_1$}},

and

title={Zeta functions over {$\mathbf{F}_1$}},

should be the right ways. Although I'd use \mathbf for both; check the original papers to see the right formatting.

Also the in the booktitle field should be ---:

In the example I use filecontents* so that it is self-contained. Fix your .bib file and use it.

\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@incollection{deitmar2005schemes,  
  title={Schemes over {$\mathbb{F}_1$}},  
  author={Deitmar, Anton},  
  booktitle={Number fields and function fields---two parallel worlds},  
  editor={Gerard van der Geer and Ben Moonen and Ren{\'e} Schoof},
  pages={87--100},  
  year={2005},  
  publisher={Birkh{\"a}user Boston}
}  
@article{kurokawa2005zeta,  
  title={Zeta functions over {$\mathbf{F}_1$}},  
  author={Kurokawa, Nobushige and others},  
  journal={Proceedings of the Japan Academy, Series A, Mathematical Sciences},  
  volume={81},  
  number={10},  
  pages={180--184},  
  year={2005},  
  publisher={The Japan Academy}  
}  
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}

\begin{document}

I cite \cite{deitmar2005schemes} and \cite{kurokawa2005zeta}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{\jobname}

\end{document}

A check in MathSciNet reveals that the second reference is by a single author and also has \mathbb, so it should be

@article {kurokawa2005zeta,
  author = {Kurokawa, Nobushige},
  title = {Zeta functions over {$\mathbb{F}_1$}},
  journal = {Proc. Japan Acad. Ser. A Math. Sci.},
  fulljournal = {Japan Academy. Proceedings. Series A. Mathematical Sciences},
  volume = {81},
  year = {2005},
  number = {10},
  pages = {180--184},
}

Change journal into shortjournal and fulljournal into journal if you want to have the full journal name spelled out.

  • Yes, \mathbf looks much better! – Tyche Jul 5 '15 at 21:06
  • the deitmar reference definitely uses blackboard bold; just checked in mathscinet. the other reference isn't covered there. – barbara beeton Jul 5 '15 at 21:26
  • @barbarabeeton Thanks. The second reference is with a single author, MR2196724 – egreg Jul 5 '15 at 21:40
  • @Tyche I've added some fixes for the second reference. – egreg Jul 5 '15 at 21:48
  • @egreg -- aha! thanks! (when i couldn't find the paper by title, i looked for the journal, and didn't find that either. your search technique is sure better than mine!) – barbara beeton Jul 5 '15 at 22:00
