Abstract
An eponym is an expression that consists of an individual's name plus a wor denoting some idea or thing associated with that person. The literatures of psychology and mathematics discuss the use of eponyms, and the presence of eponyms probably affects searches for information in those fields. In a study of 4.506 articles published in 1982, the author found that 4,4 percent of psychology article titles and 33,4 percent of methmatics article titles contained at least one eponym each. In psychology, 74 of 95 eponyms occured in articles that listed references to other works authored by the respective individuals associated with the eponyms. In mathematics, 688 of 1.105 eponyms occured in articles that cited other works having the respective names of the eponymous individuals in their titles. A comparison showed that 16,8 percent of psychology article eponyms and 39,9 percent of mathematics article eponyms exactly matched entries in at least one of their field's vocabulary lists
