I have two math papers I have submitted for publication. Unfortunately neither paper was publishable in their original form. Both times I received a write up of the subject by the reviewer. I was particularly impressed by the write up on my second paper.

I have a couple of difficulties. I have now received quality feedback from another mathematician, but I can’t find references to the subject matter. I worry this information is from a class and not published material. Also I now have an unknown person who has provided feedback from an unknown source. How do I credit an unknown referee?

My last paper had what the editor considered a fatal error near the end of the paper. If I am resubmitting a paper to a different publication what is proper to mention about the earlier submission?

Thank anonymous referees in the acknowledgements.

You should follow the venue's rules, they may require you to mention, they may not.
