We first do the case n=1.

This argument also settles the case of K= Γ.

Note that (4) covers the other cases.

There are several cases to consider:......

The general case follows by changing x to x-a.

This abstract theory is not in any way more difficult than the special case of the real line.

Important cases are where S=......

This case arises when......

Both cases can occur.

To deal with the zero characteristic case, let......

In the case of finite additivity, we have......

In the case of n≥ 1 <In case n≥ 1>,...... [Not: “In case of n>1''; better: If n≥ 1 then......]

We shall assume that this is the case.

Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.

However, it need not be the case that V> W, as we shall see in the following example.

The purpose of this paper is to provide simple exact upper bounds for the case where......

Such was the case in (8).

The L2 theory has more symmetry than is the case in L1.

Then either......, or...... In the latter <former> case,......

Note that some of the an may be repeated, in which case B has multiple zeros at those points.
