How to Write Mathematics


This short booklet contains four essays about how to write mathematics papers and books. The essays by Steenrod and Halmos, two prominent figures of 20th century mathematics, stand out for their common sense, depth and lucidity. They bring forth essential strategic issues, such as the need to maintain a clear separation between the formal and informal parts of mathematical papers, as well as useful tactical issues such as choosing notation. In my opinion, the essays transcend the field of mathematics, and the principles that they delineate are applicable to all areas of scientific writing.
