[Tex/LaTex] How to identify multiply defined and unresolved references


When compiling my .tex file, latexmk responds with

  Latexmk: Summary of warnings: Latex failed to resolve 2 reference(s) Latex found 1 multiply defined reference(s)
  1. What excatly does it mean when there are unresolved references?
  2. Is there an easy way of identifying multiply defined references? (I have a 3000 line .bib file)

Best Answer

  1. A reference that has not been found, e.g. you've used \ref{ex} without a matching \label{ex} or with a matching \label{ex} that has not been found yet. Another run of LaTeX should resolve the latter.

  2. Look in the log file for the words multiply and undefined.
