[Tex/LaTex] Undefined control sequence BibTex


This is one of the BibTex entries giving the problem:

   author = {{Bonnivard}, V. and {Combet}, C. and {Maurin}, D. and {Geringer-Sameth}, A. and 
    {Koushiappas}, S.~M. and {Walker}, M.~G. and {Mateo}, M. and 
    {Olszewski}, E.~W. and {Bailey}, III, J.~I.},
    title = "{Dark Matter Annihilation and Decay Profiles for the Reticulum II Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy}",
  journal = {\apjl},
archivePrefix = "arXiv",
   eprint = {1504.03309},
 primaryClass = "astro-ph.HE",
 keywords = {dark matter, galaxies: dwarf, galaxies: individual: Reticulum II, gamma rays: galaxies, methods: statistical, stars: kinematics and dynamics},
     year = 2015,
    month = aug,
   volume = 808,
      eid = {L36},
    pages = {L36},
      doi = {10.1088/2041-8205/808/2/L36},
   adsurl = {http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2015ApJ...808L..36B},
  adsnote = {Provided by the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System}

and corresponding bbl file giving the error at compilation is

{\sc W.~B. {Atwood}, A.~A. {Abdo}, M.~{Ackermann}, W.~{Althouse},
  B.~{Anderson}, M.~{Axelsson}, L.~{Baldini}, J.~{Ballet}, D.~L. {Band},
  G.~{Barbiellini}, and et~al.}
\newblock {\bf {The Large Area Telescope on the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope
\newblock {\em \apj}, {\bf 697}:1071--1102, June 2009.

My guess is that Kile doesn't like references of the form 2015ApJ...808L..36B since these are the only ones giving the error.

Can somebody hint me to the problem in this? Thank you very much

Based on the citation keys of the problematic entries, I would guess they originate from ADS.

From the ADS FAQ:

Please note that our BibTeX entries make use of the AASTeX macro definitions for the most popular astronomical journals. If you're not using the AASTeX package then you will need to include these macros in your LaTeX source.

In its current state, your document seems to be missing suitable definitions for \apjl and \apj.
