# BibLaTeX: how to reverse order of volume and series?

I'm having trouble where volume is somehow appearing before series, possibly due to my own error. That is, I have

[1] Da Prato, G., Zabczyk, J. (2014). Stochastic Equations in Infinite Dimensions. Vol. 152. Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

when I would really rather

[1] Da Prato, G., Zabczyk, J. (2014). Stochastic Equations in Infinite Dimensions. Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications, Vol. 152., Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

where the volume number 152 somehow appears before the series (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications). How can I reverse the order?

The MWE below is a hodgepodge of things I found on this site. Its the smallest I can comfortably make it, I'm not sure if it is truly the most minimal of MWEs. In particular, after removing everything after \makeatother, volume is still before series. I thought I should include the rest of it anyway in case I dont realise something interacts weirdly.

The reference:

@book{da2014stochastic,
title={Stochastic Equations in Infinite Dimensions},
author={Da Prato, Giuseppe and Zabczyk, Jerzy},
series = {Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications},
volume = {152},
year={2014},
location={Cambridge},
publisher={Cambridge University Press}
}


and my MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,reqno]{amsart}

%% BibLaTeX implementation of TandF references style

\usepackage[
%sorting=none,
citestyle=numeric,
bibstyle=authoryear,
dashed=false,
firstinits=true
]{biblatex}
\makeatletter
\input{numeric.bbx}
\makeatother

\renewbibmacro*{volume+number+eid}{%

\printfield{eid}}
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{number}{\mkbibparens{#1}}

\DeclareNameAlias{default}{last-first}
\renewbibmacro{in:}{}

• The part of a series is a number and not volume. Jan 22, 2018 at 11:11
• @moewe oh, so the code is working 'as intended' and it is my @book... that is wrong? Jan 22, 2018 at 11:14
• I should think so, yes. Jan 22, 2018 at 11:15
• Hello @CalvinKhor: you could add this link to your recent nice answer in mse.meta. The notorious user was exposed in one of the answers there. See Martin Argerami's comments. In case you are curious, I am one who knows lots of dirty things of mse. I'm sure you know quite a few too.

The instalments of a series are numbered in the number field and not with volume. So you want
