zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Writing mathematical papers in English. A practical guide. (English) Zbl 0856.00009
Gdańsk: Gdańskie Wyd. Oświatowe (Gdańsk Teachers’ Press). 48 p. (1993).
This little booklet provides practical help for authors of mathematical papers to improve their English language skills. The two parts, entitled ‘Phrases used in mathematical texts’ and ‘Selected problems of English grammar’ offer an interesting collection of ready-made sentences and, of even greater importance, point out typical errors. (The author is the copy-editor of well-established journals like Acta Arithmetica, Studia Mathematica, etc.). The reviewer highly recommends this guide to authors as well as to editors in mathematics.
