Although there is a great temptation to make abstracts from the chapter of a term paper or thesis, or even a paragraph, by reducing the text to the required volume, it is absolutely not worth doing this. Such a “method” is unlikely to preserve the logic of the presentation of the material and convey the whole meaning of the report. In the worst case, you will get a set of broken thoughts that the listeners are unlikely to be able to put artist thesis together into a single picture. Therefore, before writing the abstract, bring together your ideas on the topic of the report, clearly imagine what you want to say to the audience, and write from scratch as if writing an article in a newspaper or a note in a magazine, but on a completely scientific level. Why?
