Mathematical Review of “How to Write Mathematics” by P.R. Halrnos

  • G. Piranian
Part of the Operator Theory Advances and Applications book series (OT, volume 207)


Halmos delivers a vigorous piece of his mind on the craft of writing. His principal message concerns the spiral plan, whose wide adoption would certainly raise the standards of mathematical prose in our books and journals. Lest readers deceive themselves and believe that they need not go to the original paper, I abstain from describing the plan.
