  • An acedemic paper is a curious mix of (in programming terms) code and documentation. It has to be a precise description that can be duplicated by others (i.e. code), but it also has to be understood intellectually by the reader (i.e. documentation). The set theoretic notation is compact and precise, working better as the code formulation; your "translation" works better as the documentation formulation. Best would be to have both, perhaps in a two column layout with the prose "documentation" in one column and the set theoretic "code" beside it in the other column.
