I am writing a pure-math paper.
I want to cite a paper where the authors are not listed in alphabetical order, e.g.:
John Smith and Anna Perez
I know that the latter is the supervisor of the former.
I assume that when citing this paper, I should not change the order of authors (if this is wrong or more complicated, please let me know).
What I’m less sure about, is where to list the paper in my bibliography. Typically, I just sort the bibliography alphabetically. But here it is not clear to me if I should do this.
For example, should a paper by Kay Roberts be listed before or after the above paper in the bibliography? Or is there no consensus on such situations?
