AMS & ASA Style

AMS (American Mathematical Society) and ASA (American Statistical Association) are the two commonly used styles for math, however there is no central style used so it may be necessary to contact your instructor or publisher for the most appropriate style for your work.

Other recent suggestions include the use of Chernoff faces (Smith 1980).

We rely on an algorithm of Das Gupta (1965, pp. 115-120).
