Explaining Your Ideas In Examples

When explaining ideas, people they’ll start right away with examples they’ll explain it quite differently than if they do they will not be out there well you get the idea they would they often explain it in much more accessible and engaging way at a whiteboard than in a paper so if you want to be accessible and engaging do the same thing in the papers you do it the whiteboard merely you need to have a bit more substance so here’s a narrative flow that I usually try to follow in my papers right you want to say here’s what the problem is you want to motivate your reader to say why it’s an interesting problem you want to say at least briefly why it’s an unsolved problem so it would be worth solving and it’s unsolved and then you want to present your idea.

That’s the payload right viruses arrive now all right and then you give quite a bit of detail about exactly how what your idea is and how it works then you want to say something about some how your idea compares with other people so you kind of try to leave people in remember not everybody will read like the way through your paper your ideal is that wherever anybody stops reading they take away something valuable with them and moreover every bit they read makes them want to read more like this is back to making it accessible right so you know they say ah here’s an interesting problem I wish I could solve that one I wonder whether he can solve it so they’ve you know they’ve got the hook they’re inclined to read some more so here’s my a sort of typical outline for most papers that I write and indeed it works for dissertations as well sure abstract an introduction then something about the stating what the problem is then quite a bit a bit of a short piece explaining what the idea is kind of intuitively and then a longer piece explaining the details behind the idea that sort of fills out the evidence then something about related work and I’m going to say a bit more about each of these sections in the following piece.

But this is my picture of how the structure of a paper might go and look at the numbers of readers right more people will read your abstract in title that will read all the rest of the paper so each time you want to give them a hook to continue here’s what I think your introduction should do one page describe the problem briefly and articulate what your contributions are so here’s some by way of example describing the problem I would suggest you introduce your problem with an example so my crude way of doing it to say is there any typewriter font on the first page and a programming languages guy and programming languages people tend to put example programs in typewriter font so I know if there’s typewriter font in a paper it’s probably an example that’s good like but in your fields it may differ.
