For a number of references: K.H. Potter (ed.), Advaita Vedaanta up to
"Sa;nkara and His Pupils. Delhi etc. 1981 (Encyclopedia of Indian
Philosophies, 3).

With regard to the authorship question of the Paatañjalayo"
Chapter 6. (pp. 205-242) of W. Halbfass, Tradition and Reflection.
Explorations in Indian Thought. New York 1991.

By the way, T.S. Rukmani did not prepare a new edition of the
Paatañjalayo", but rather published a copy of the
Madras-edition (Paatañ of
"Sa;nkara-Bhagavatpaada. Critically ed. with Introduction by 
 Polakam Sri
Rama Sastri 
 and S.R. Krishnamurthi Sastri 
 Madras 1952 (Madras Government
Oriental Series, 94). For details please see the review of her translation
