Gowers needs you for an experiment concerning mathematical writing

Do you know about metric spaces? Would you like to be the subject of an experiment? Then Timothy Gowers needs you!

Gowers put a post on his weblog this morning containing five propositions to do with metric spaces, along with three write-ups of proofs of each proposition. He’s looking for feedback on how easy or hard to understand each write-up is, as well as how well-written they were.

If you’ve some time to spare, go and take part in the experiment over at Gowers’s weblog.
