Some sources of information and advice for PG students
Most of the following are taken from
Justin Zobel's web page,
and many of the URLs were provided by Michael Fuller.
Justin himself wrote
Writing for Computer Science, published by Springer-Verlag.
His text covers style and presentation for research in computer science.
And here's an old document of unknown origin on
And here's a
list of lists
from Jenny Wang (a student of Joe Goguen). Much of the advice here is
related to the US, and I haven't vetted it in detail, but I thought I'd
add it for possible reference.
Lastly, if you're one of my students and you want to know how you're
mathematically connected to Gauss (amongst others) look at
Mathematics Genealogy Project.
There's also a missing line which goes:
Walters, Hanna Neumann, Olga Taussky-Todd, Furtwangler,
Klein, Lipschitz, Dirichlet, Poisson, Fourier, Lagrange, Euler
and the Bernoulli's, as well as providing yet another line to Gauss.
