9780821806357: A Primer of Mathematical Writing: Being a Disquisition on Having Your Ideas Recorded, Typeset, Published, Read & Appreciated

This book is about writing in the professional mathematical environment. While the book is nominally about writing, it's also about how to function in the mathematical profession. In many ways, this text complements Krantz's previous bestseller, How to Teach Mathematics. Those who are familiar with Krantz's writing will recognize his lively, inimitable style.

In this volume, he addresses these nuts-and-bolts issues:

Syntax, grammar, structure, and style
Mathematical exposition
Use of the computer and TeX
E-mail etiquette
All aspects of publishing a journal article

Krantz's frank and straightforward approach makes this book particularly suitable as a textbook. He does not avoid difficult topics. His intent is to demonstrate to the reader how to successfully operate within the profession. He outlines how to write grant proposals that are persuasive and compelling, how to write a letter of recommendation describing the research abilities of a candidate for promotion or tenure, and what a dean is looking for in a letter of recommendation. He further addresses some basic issues such as writing a book proposal to a publisher or applying for a job. Readers will find in reading this text that Krantz has produced a quality work which makes evident the power and significance of writing in the mathematics profession.

From the Back Cover:

This book is about writing in the professional mathematical environment. There are few people equal to this task, yet Steven Krantz is one who qualifies. While the book is nominally about writing, it's also about how to function in the mathematical profession. Those who are familiar with Krantz's writing will recognize his lively, inimitable style. In this volume, he addresses these nuts-and-bolts issues: syntax, grammar, structure, and style; mathematical exposition; use of the computer and T(subscript E)X; E-mail etiquette; and all aspects of publishing a journal article. Krantz's frank and straightforward approach makes this particularly suitable as a textbook. He does not avoid difficult topics. His intent is to demonstrate to the reader how to successfully operate within the profession. He outlines how to write grant proposals that are persuasive and compelling, how to write a letter of recommendation describing the research abilities of a candidate for promotion or tenure, and what a dean is looking for in a letter of recommendation.

Review:

"This book is about writing in the professional mathematical environment. While the book is nominally about writing, it's also about how to function in the mathematical profession. Krantz's frank and straightforward approach makes this particularly suitable as a textbook. He does not avoid difficult topics." ---- Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik

"Krantz provides brief but helpful advice on writing a survey article, an opinion piece, a letter of recommendation, a book review, a referee's report, a talk, a grant application, a curriculum vitae, a job application, and email. He concludes his book with a chapter called 'The modern writing environment' which discusses the use of computers, TeX, spell checkers, etc. Krantz's book is lively, entertaining and provides many amusing anecdotes ... [an] excellent and worthy candidate for a statistician's library ... more useful on your personal bookshelf than in a shared library, so it can be consulted regularly." ---- Australian and New Zealand Journal of Statistics

"Krantz, a prolific and distinguished mathematical author, discourses engagingly (yet seriously) on the art and etiquette of virtually all types of writing an academic mathematician is likely to encounter ... Grammatical points, stylistic and typesetting issues, and the correct and effective use of mathematical notation are handled deftly and with good humor ... [Hopefully] senior faculty will consider it mandatory reading for graduate students and even upper-division undergraduates. An enjoyable way to learn some fundamentals of good mathematical writing. Highly recommended." ---- Choice
