I am trying to express the following idea: I have L(t) and F(t) to denote that L and F are functions of t. Now, for the rest of the text, I want to use a shorter notation, that is L and F instead of L(t) and F(t).
My attempt:

For notational convenience we will drop the notation for dependence on t and L ...

Could you please help me in adding, in this same sentence, the fact that "we also drop the notation for dependence between t and F ?

P.S.:Please don't hesitate to edit the title to give a better description to my question.

    If you describe once that L and F are functions of one variable, t, then you don't usually need to justify omitting the parentheses. Something like "Let L and F be functions of t: L=L(t), F=F(t)." and just keep using L and F afterwards. – Victor Bazarov Nov 10 '15 at 15:38

I would just say "for convenience, we drop the input notation t", or "...the notation for dependence on t". It is implied you mean for both functions L and F.

Omit is the word you want, it means "supposed to be there but not included."

Leave out will work as well and sound a bit less technical.

... for convenience, we'll omit the input notation the notation for dependence on t and L ...

  • The original poster's example seems formal. "we'll" might not be formal enough. – Jasper Dec 11 '15 at 21:46
  • I think present tense works here "we omit...". – Justin Young Dec 16 '15 at 13:32
