Is it inappropriate to mail a senior academic (e.g. professor), whom I don’t know, asking –
- to check Lemma, Theorem ( less than 3 to 4, short/ little)
- how a graph can be constructed (with given conditions), this might require his ‘intellectual time’ as the class of graph is unlikely to be familiar.
- reference related 1,2 .
In general, if I need 1,2,3 as described above how I communicate with an academic over e-mail?
