I graduated last year and had been working on a problem. Now I have some progress and am interested in applying (non US places mostly, mathematical physics). How should I write a thesis proposal? I have the draft version of my work but it is extremely technical and will require serious patience to read the whole thing. Whoever I can summarize the important ideas in a smaller thing.
My question is if I should attach an abstract, a summary and the draft of the paper along with the introductory mail? How should the mail be structured?
On a side note, one of the people at the institute had commended my work some time back when I had sent them a previous draft.
