Retraction in 2017, of an article from 2001

In 2017 the journal retracted (or pulled back the journal's support for an article it had printed), an article that it published in 2001. The website Retraction Watch, thinks that the retraction is the first ever, by the journal.

The article "was retracted because the (mathematical) proofs in the paper were found to be incomplete", said a spokesman for the journal. The article, by Jing-Song Huang, has not been cited (as of July 2017), according to Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science.
