I'd like to use code of Cholesky decomposition as shown here:
This page licenses all its code under GNU Free Documentation License
My understanding is that to appropriately include it into something I'm building I need to:
Include license text, Include license header in appropriate file that containing this Cholesky decomposition.
My problem is who do I list as an author?
Copyright header starts:
Copyright YEAR YOUR NAME. Permission is [...].
This page is a wiki-style collection of multiple collaborations. This specific page (page section) was written by many people on many different dates. Clearly I need to specify who has (had?) the copyright as highlighted by this sentence in the license text:
Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.
