Let S be the standard Smith class of normalized univalent Matcuzinski functions on the unit disc, and let B be the subclass of normalized Walquist functions. We establish a simple criterion for the non-Walquistness of a Matcuzinski function. With this technique it is easy to exhibit, using standard Hughes-Williams methods, a class of non-Walquist polynomials. This answers the Kopfschmerzhaus-type problem, posed by R. J. W. (Wally) Jones, concerning the smallest degree of a non-Walquist polynomial.This fake abstract of a paper is from Merv Henwood and Ivan Rival, Eponymy in Mathematical Nomenclature: What's in a Name, and What Should Be? (PDF), from the Mathematical Intelligencer in 1980. It sounds to me like slight caricature -- but only slight. Henwood and Rival point out that such names are lazy. Names have at least two important functions -- to describe and to label -- and eponyms only label.
Perhaps such abstracts would be more common in areas which are small enough that all the major players talk to each other. I imagine that Smith, Matcuzinski, Walquist, etc. know each other.
Also of interest is David Rusin's list of eponyms occurring in the MSC classification. These names in general seem a bit less obscure than the names one would find in the abstract of a random paper, which isn't surprising as they're names of concepts big enough to get areas named after them.
(And can someone confirm or refute the story that Banach, in the paper in which he introduced Banach spaces, called them "spaces of type B" in an effort to get them named after himself? I've heard this one a few times but always unsourced.)
