“THE ART OF TEXT BOOK WRITING”
(IIT) Bombay, India.
at JN Technological University, Hyderabad, India.
Professor Sang-Gu Lee have already started writing
a text book entitled “CALCULUS” in English for Korean students.
(face -to- face) whereas a text book is a lecturer in absence. Text book is neither an encyclopedia to be elaborate nor a research paper to be brief.
For example: Pierre Simon Marquis De Laplace
( 1749-1827), French mathematician, known as the Newton of France and teacher to the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.
William Sealy Gosset ( 1876-1937) English statistician, who published under the pseudonym “student” .
Wronski determinant or Wronskian:
I.M.Hone (1778-1853) Polish mathematician, who changed his name to Wronski.
( starting from the simple to moderate to difficult) , quiz, true-false questions, additional hard questions.
IBI = IBTI ,IA –λI I = I(A- λ I)T I = IAT – (λ I)T I = IAT – λ ITI = IAT – λ I I
IBI =IBTI,IA –λI I = I(A- λ I)T I ⇒IAT –(λ I)TI= IAT–λ ITI = IAT – λ I I
We know that IBI = IBTI .
In the above result with B = A –λI , we have
IA – λII = I(A- λI)T I
= IAT –(λI )TI applying transposition
= IAT – λITI since transpose of a scalar λ is λ itself
= IAT –λI I since transpose of I is I itself.
“ since”; “because” , “it follows”, etc.
cannot be stolen by anybody.
So go ahead.
The world is before you.
Get name, fame and money by becoming a good author and teacher.
. Define and describe adequately all terms or variables,
in units if any.
. Label all the diagrams, tables, graphs and other pictures.
. Once a variable has been assigned a meaning, do not re-use it with a different meaning in the same context.
. There is a distinction between the definite article ( "the" ) and the indefinite articles ( "a" and "an" ).
. Be sure that the use of a term agrees with the definition
of that term.
. State all your assumptions.
