  • T. D. ManteiHow do you give credit? Use references!These someone elses words: The proof of Theorem 1 does not require NP completeness.

    Theorem 1 can be proved without proving NP completeness.13 13. F. Chen, Proceedings of .

    It has been shown that the proof of Theorem 1 does not require NP completeness.13 13. F. Chen, Proceedings of .

    Someone elses words: This system remains linear at all frequencies.

    It can be shown that this system remains linear at all frequencies.7 7. P. Das, IEEE Transactions on

    Suppose you want to use someones equations:-------------------------- (these are someone elses equations)

    The following system of equations, from Sugai and Samukawa,18 provides the basis for our model.--------------------------S. Sugai and T. Samukawa, J. Appl. Phys. 21,

  • T. D. ManteiSuppose you want to use someones exact words

    If you use someone elses exact words, you must use quotation marks and then reference.

    Taken from a book: Plasma etching is the only commercially viable procedure for removing material from surfaces.

    Plasma etching is the only commercially viable procedure for removing material from surfaces.10

    10. M. Lieberman, in Principles of Plasma Discharges

    T. D. Mantei

  • T. D. Mantei

    Or, use your own words (paraphrase) and then reference:

    It has been stated that only plasma etching is commercially viable for the removal of material from surfaces.10

    10. M. Lieberman, in Principles of Plasma Discharges

  • T. D. ManteiWhen dont you have to give credit?

    When something is general knowledge (i.e., given in every textbook), then it is not necessary to reference.

    Ex: Silicon is a Group IV semiconductor.Light has both a wave and a particle nature.Every modern computer has an operating system.World War II ended in 1945.Paris is the capital of France.F = m x aEtc.
