Missing profile and incorrectly attributed papers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have been trying to sell my I-device-loving academic son on the virtues of Microsoft (I'm an employee), but my campaign is not helped by the fact that in the Academic Search app, his academic profile is missing, and papers have been mis-attributed.

    It is confused by his fairly common name.

    Could you please set up a profile and correct attributions.

     He is A. Peter Nelson, but publishes as just 'Peter Nelson'.

    He is based at Victoria University of Wellington, NZ - homepage http://homepages.ecs.vuw.ac.nz/~apnelson/

    Currently, Peter F. Nelson at Macquarie University incorrectly displays my son's photo and has an incorrect link to my son's old academic homepage when he was at University of Waterloo, Canada ( http://www.math.uwaterloo.ca/~apnelson/ )

    His papers are:

    Sequential automatic algebras
    CiE (2008), 84-93. With Michael Brough and Bakhadayr Khoussainov

    (currently incorrectly attributed to Peter C. Nelson University of Illinois Chicago )

    The number of points in a matroid with no n-point line as a minor
    JCTb 100 (2010), 625-630. With Jim Geelen

    (currently incorrectly attributed to Peter R. Nelson University of Florida)

    Thanks,

    Andrew Nelson
