I did:

 author = {G\"{u}nter Rote},
 title = {Division-free algorithms for the determinant and the Pfaffian:
 algebraic and combinatorial approaches},
 book = {Computational Discrete Mathematics: advanced lectures},
 year = {2001},
 isbn = {3-540-42775-9},
 pages = {119--135},
 publisher = {Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.},
 address = {New York, NY, USA},
 eprint = 

I guess the right way to write is

  author = {G{\"u}nter Rote},

See Section 2.1(4) in

PS: It follows the text that I cited above.

4. BibTEX now handles accented characters. For example if you have an entry with the two fields

  author = "Kurt G{\"o}del",
  year = 1931,

and if you're using the alpha bibliography style, then BibTE X will con- struct the label [Göd31] for this entry, which is what you'd want. To get this feature to work you must place the entire accented character in braces; in this case either {\"o} or {\"{o}} will do. Furthermore these braces must not themselves be enclosed in braces (other than the ones that might delimit the entire field or the entire entry); and there must be a backslash as the very first character inside the braces. Thus neither {G{\"{o}}del} nor {G\"{o}del} will work for this example. This feature handles all the accented characters and all but the nonback- slashed foreign symbols found in Tables 3.1 and 3.2 of the LATEX book. This feature behaves similarly for ``accents'' you might define; we'll see an example shortly. For the purposes of counting letters in labels, BibTEX considers everything contained inside the braces as a single letter.
