A journal article in pdf form is attached to this job. After reading this article, and then based off of it, a 2-3 page summary is to be written.
1) One quality of a well written paper is that it will give the reader some idea of the motivation for the work, how the work fits into the current state of affairs in the research field, and how the work presented in the paper advances the “state of the art”. The paper should give some background references to help establish these things. Identify the motivation of the authors. What work had been done previously by the authors or others that led up to the publication of the paper? The authors should state what contribution their paper makes to the field. What is this? In general, why did they write this paper?
2) This paper should also give you some idea of how the results given in the paper advance the general knowledge in the field. Identify and summarize what this is for the paper.
3) Briefly summarize the main results of the paper and the main conclusions of the paper. Is this mainly an experimental paper (where real, physical measurements are the main results of the paper), or a theoretical paper (where the main results are from calculations or simulations), or is there some of both?
