a restrictive defining phrase The phrase such that is generally used in definitions as a restrictive defining element Therefore it is not set off by commas Let S denote set of all x in X such that x is irrational Choose x in G such that x also belongs to the subgroup H See such that vs so that below for a usage problem 2 The Subjunctive Mood in English The subjunctive mood used to express among other things a wish requirement or possibility is used less in English than in such Eurpoean languages as French German Italian and Russian Nonetheless there are several common uses of the subjunctive in mathematical writing of which one should be aware Most sentences expressing a requirement employ the subjunctive We require that the exponent be a nonnegative integer It is necessary that the exponent be a nonnegative integer We insist that the exponent be a nonnegative integer Note however that the subjunctive is not generally used with such words as assume and suppose We assume that the exponent is a nonnegative integer We hypothesize that the exponent is a nonnegative integer Since it is used to express something counterfactual the subjunctive often appears in proofs by contradiction Suppose x were not an element of Z Then x would not commute with some element z and we would have xz neq zx a contradiction It is often desirable to avoid the complexities of the subjunctive In English the preceding sentences may be correctly cast in the indicative mood Suppose x is not an element of Z Then x does not commute with some element z and we have xz neq zx a contradiction 3 Dangling Modifiers A common error is the so called dangling modifier a word or phrase associated by its placement with a word other than one it is intended to modify or with no such word at all Incorrect On stepping into the street the bus ran over the pedestrian In this example it seems to be the bus that stepped into the street The problem is usually solved by placing the word to be modified in this case pedestrian near the phrase that modifies it On stepping into the street the pedestrian was run over by a bus Here is a mathematical example Incorrect Summing over all elements of H the result is zero Here summing refers to the person doing the summing not to the result correct After summing over all elements of H we find that the result is zero Here are a few more examples After proving the following theorem it will be clear that After proving the following theorem we shall see that or After we have proved the following theorem it will be clear that Even if f n is initially a signed distance function f n 1 will generally not be a signed distance function after solving the linear system Here solving is the dangling modifier Even if f n is initially a signed distance function f n 1 will generally not be a signed distance function after the linear system has been solved or Even if f n is initially a signed distance function f n 1 will generally not be a signed distance function after we have solved the linear system 4 Parallel Structure For clarity similar items in a sentence are given the same form Examples with either or Use the same structure after or as was used after either We need to prove either that p is prime or that p is divisible by 4 incorrect We need to prove either that p is prime or p is divisible by 4 We have seen that either the group is abelian or it is simple We have seen that the group is either abelian or simple incorrect We have seen that either the group is abelian or is simple The same principle applies with both and We must prove both that the group is abelian and that it is not cyclic incorrect We must prove both that the group is abelian and is not cyclic Parallel structures are also used with constructions such as greater than and as well as incorrect Its total run time may be greater than the Dostoevsky algorithm Its total run time may be greater than the run time of the Dostoevsky algorithm Its total run time may be greater than that of the Dostoevsky algorithm incorrect We must be able to handle this case as well as maintaining the sparsity of the original matrix correct We must be able to handle this case as well as maintain the sparsity of the original matrix correct We must be able to handle this case as well as to maintain the sparsity of the original matrix III Usage The following usages often cause trouble for nonnative speakers writing mathematics in English 1 Present Perfect or Simple Past In contrast to some languages in which the verb form she has lived or we have proved can represent an action completed in the past gestern haben wir bewiesen hier nous avons démontré ieri abbiamo dimostrato in English this form expresses completed action in the present If a reference to a definite past time appears in a sentence or is even implied then generally the simple past must be used simple past In last week s seminar we proved the prime number theorem Although a jurist by profession Fermat was a brilliant mathematician Research on this topic was conducted for many years But it is no longer a topic of interest In earlier chapters we considered only positive numbers present perfect Since x is nonzero we have proved the following theorem Thus far in this chapter we have considered only positive numbers Research on this topic has been conducted for many years And continues to be conducted 2 Negating Adjectives The prefix non is generally used to form a negative of an adjective nonabelian nonzero nonintegrable Certain words do not follow this

nonmathematical discourse you have to be particularly alert in your mathematical writing The reason for this is that the choice between a and an depends not on the way that something is written but on how it is pronounced Fans of popular music may recall the appearance of Country Joe McDonald at the legendary Woodstock Festival Gimme an F Gimme a U Which is completely counterintutive Even though F is a consonant the name of the letter is pronounced eff which begins with a vowel In the case of U the situation is reversed The pronunciation is you which begins with the consonant Y and that is why one says a U And of course in mathematical discourse individual letters are encountered in quantity Thus one says and writes an M ideal an NP hard problem an Hp space a U test a Y flow and keep in mind that in English the letter Y is pronounced wye not vie as it might be in some other languages And then there is the question of words that begin with the letter H In hour the H is silent whereas in history it is pronounced Therefore one writes an hour but a history lesson There are some people who say or write an historic occasion an horrific event or an hotel This however reflects a pronunciation that was common in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries but has since died out Therefore since the H is in fact pronounced in those three words one should write and say a historic occasion a horrific event and a hotel And there is one more bit of ambiguity the British pronounce the H in herb while the Americans do not Finally one has to know how the Greek letters are pronounced since they appear frequently
