I wanted the heading to be the authors of each respective chapters instead of its \chaptermark, like the picture displayed below:

enter image description here

This is my code:


   \ifnum\c@secnumdepth > \m@ne
     {\scshape\@chapapp}\ {\oldstylenums{\thechapter}}. \ %
   {\scshape ##1}}}{}}}



\makeevenhead{headings}{\oldstylenums{\thepage}}{\textsc{seminar iv}}{}




\chapterauthor{bertrand einstein}


I've tried changing the %\def\chaptermark##1{% to \def\printchapterauthor##1{%. It worked. The headings are now displayed what I wanted it to be. Unfortunately, the author's names in each respective chapter pages are suddenly missing. Please excuse my ignorance, for I am new to LaTeX.

    The data given to the header is more or less set after \chapter{Introduction}, thus hard to add to it. It might be easier to do something like \ChapterWithAuthor{Title}{Author} and then make sure author is saved in a macro which is then used inside \chaptermark when \ChapterWithAuthor issues \chapter{Title}\chapterauthor{Author}

You can add a \chaptermark call to the author command:
