Hi Pierre: I started to work on this but then realized I don't understand your data & problem properly. In 1972 we see that star author 1 wrote a paper w. joe 2 & wrote zero papers w. joe 3. Presumably too star author 1 wrote zero papers w. joes 4 & 5, although there is no observation saying so. So, I don't understand how in your desired output you expect to get stk_nbcoauth_it (what does this mean?) = 2 for 1972. Also, 1975 only appears once in your data (3 papers written w. joe 2) but in your desired output, stk_nbcoauth_it = 2 -- please explain. Lastly, you mention something about performing the summing over the last three years -- what does that mean here?
