## denote

[*see also*: call, designate, write, set, symbol, label, relabel, rename

Denote by P the space of...... [*Not*: “Note P the space of......'']

We let T denote the set of......

......with e_{0} denoting multiplication by f.

The wedge denotes that e_{i} has been omitted.

Then we can find a subsequence (still denoted by a_{n}) such that a_{n}<1 for all n.

[Rather than: “Denote f=......”, write:
* Define <Set/Let/Write> f=......*]
