The method falls short of providing an explicit formula for the index.
We write G=FHF-1 for short. [= for brevity; not: “We write shortly'']
In short, F preserves the algebraic structure of M. [= To sum up briefly]
Our main results state in short that MEP characterizes type 2 spaces among reflexive Banach spaces.
