Every reference in the bibliography must be cited explicitely in the article. References which show up only in the bibliography and are not referenced in the text will otherwise be swallowed during the Living Reviews conversion process!

In the reference list, don’t use exposed commands like that:

Schr\"odinger equation.

Rather use this form:

Schr{\"o}dinger equation.
