Mathematical English Usage - a Dictionary

by Jerzy Trzeciak


We sketch the proof of the easy half of the theorem.

This proves one half of (2); the other half is a matter of direct computation.

the left half of the interval

the upper half of the unit disc

Thus F is greater by a half.

 F is half the sum of the positive roots. [Or: half of the sum]

Half of the sets of R miss i and half the remaining miss j.

Then J contains an interval of half its length in which f is positive.

On average, about half the list will be tested.

Now F is half as long as G. [Or: as G is]

We divide N in half.

The length of F is thus reduced by half.
