"Alfred Young's style of mathematical writing has unfortunately gone out of fashion: it is based on the assumption that the reader is to be treated as a gentleman with a sound mathematical education, and gentlemen need not be told the lowly details of proof. As a consequence, we have to figure out certain inferences for which Young omits any explanation out of respect for his readers."

G.-C. Rota, "Indiscrete thoughts."
