How to update this page

Please help us keep this page updated - users can post new citations to the mailing list, while Boost developers should update the page directly in the repository.

  • If a publication is available both in print and online, cite it in the appropriate print section, with a hyperlink to the online version.
  • Bookmark the contents of [...] in the first column to make it easy to link to the entry.
  • Identify the first entry an author has in a given year with just the two-digit year. Subsequent entries for the same author and year should have a-z appended.
  • Inside each section, entries are grouped by year and, within a year, alphabetically sorted by author name.
  • In the text, spell out absolute URL's so that printed versions of this page include the full URL.
