Gary Hieftje and the phenomenon of coincident discovery

L de Galan and Margaretha de Loos-Vollebregt UGent (2012) SPECTROCHIMICA ACTA PART B-ATOMIC SPECTROSCOPY. 76. p.4-6
abstract
Inventions appear not to come out of the blue but rather to spring to life when the time is ripe. This is certainly true for analytical atomic spectroscopy, where the three main inventions are generally associated with one prominent name, whereas in fact all three were proposed by two independent researchers. Drawing from our own experience we shall demonstrate that shared ownership can also be observed in more mundane examples. Is this a simple case of concurrent development or is there also a competitive element?
