Article title

Should this be at Basel problem or Basel Problem? Seemingly authoritative sources use both. (I am holding off creating metadata, etc pages until we decide.) J. Noel Chiappa 12:08, 28 March 2008 (CDT)

The text is clear: it says consistently Basel problem (except for the title). --Paul Wormer 12:13, 28 March 2008 (CDT)
Right, but when I looked online quickly, I saw some what looked like knowledgeable math sites (e.g., using the "Problem". But I also see a lot using "problem". So, since I'm not a mathematician, I flagged it so the experts could tell me what to do! :-)
This is not a math Problem, but a linguistic problem. --Paul Wormer 14:12, 28 March 2008 (CDT)
So I guess we need a mathematical linguist... :-) J. Noel Chiappa 14:16, 28 March 2008 (CDT)
