Appendix B NEMETH DATABASE This Nemeth database has the conversions for most commonly used mathematics sysmbols

. All these conversions should be used inside the CZ editing mode in the WordPerfect, to be translated exactly. Please make sure you close the exact translation mode by including $tx[sp] after the Nemeth Code. Use the blank sheet to write down the symbols you come across that are not in this database, and we will update it every month. This database is arranged in alphabetical order. For exam ple to find code for µ you can either check mu, or Greek Alphabet. Note: Each column is seperated by two hyphens. Category Symbol Nemeth code Explanation/Example

Alpha a .a Greek a. Upper case use .,a Ampersand & _& Ampersand Angle $[ Angle ABC is represented as $[,a,b,c Angstrom Units °A @,a Units of measurements shown inink-print capital A with a hollow dot above it. Arrow bidirectional < $[o Split bi-directional arrow. Used in chemical equations Arrow left > 33o Arrow head ending on the left side. Can used in Chemical eqns, limits, etc Arrow right < [33 Arrow head pointing to the right Arrow vertical ^ <33o Arrow standing vertical Arrow vertical v %33o Arrow pointing downwards Asterisk * @# Asterisk inside Nemeth editing, outside leave t as it is. At sign @ @a Ex: @20 @a#20 Backlash \ _* Baseline indicator " Used after subscript or superscript only when there is no space after the subscript/superscript. Unnecessary baseline indicators must be avoided as much as possible. Beta b .b Greek letter b, Capital Beta.,b Bold face X _;,x If the ink-print character is very distinct, then bold face indicator should be used. The ; in the conversion is the alphabet indicator, need to be used for text symbols. Braces {} .(.) Braces enlarged {} .,(.,) used to signify the difference. {4} = .(#4.) when there are multiple braces, should be

Bracket [] @(@) [4] = @(#4@) Capitalization CHN ,c,h,n need to include capitalization sign before each letter Capitalization, letter A ,a when only one letter needs capitalization Capitalization, word THEN ,,then when the whole words need capitalization. Do not use whole words in Nemeth unless you know grade 1 translation for them.
