Description: PostScript, DVI, and LaTeX versions of each (but no HTML) are available. How to Write a Proof: A method of writing proofs is proposed that makes it much harder to prove things that are not true. The method, based on hierarchical structuring, is simple and practical. How to Write a Long Formula: Standard mathematical notation works well for short formulas, but not for the longer ones often written by computer scientists. Notations are proposed to make one or two-page formulas easier to read and reason about.
