    Volume III - Semiconductors
    Chapter 2.2 Quantum physics

    "Since elements with identical electron configurations in their outermost shell(s) exhibit similar chemical properties, Dimitri Mendeleev organized the different elements in a table accordingly."


    It's better to spell his name as "Dmitri"

    It is a valid correction.

    Even if Latin characters are used to write his name, they should give a close phonetic representation and Wikipedia is a good reference.

    What is more, below the text the author uses the spelling "Dmitri" as well to refer to the same person. So we have a mix of spellings within the same chapter.
