Abstracts 
Description: The goal of this course is to introduce students to technical English used
by mathematicians. Improving technical English will help the students write
better papers. We will also discuss giving talks in English. Practice is
the best way to improve, and the students will have an opportunity to write
and present a small paper. Original mathematical work is not expected.
Audience: 4th grade, Master, and Doctoral students.
Plan:
Lecture One:
We will describe the rules of technical English and discuss the process
of writing a paper and preparing a talk.
Lecture Two:
In this lecture will will introduce LaTeX, a system for writing papers
used by most mathematicians. The students will choose assignments for practice
papers. This assignments may be (mathematically) very simple, for example
proving that the square root of 2 is irrational. Students working on their
own papers or dissertations are encouraged to use those.
Lectures Three and Four:
Advanced topics in presentation; advanced LaTeX typesetting; students presentations;
discussion of students' papers. The paper may be typed using any flavor
of TeX.
