I'm a foreigner student who I am about to do the final college degree project at an English speaking country.
I have seen that a lot of professors' project proposals for the students are formulated with the following structure, for instance:
On the construction and application of implicit factored schemes for conservation laws.
I have been studying English for years and I can understand it really good. However, what attracts my attention here is the structure: "On the computation..."
I had never seen before this structure until now that I'm seeing it very often and I'm just curious about when it is used and why.
I understand the meaning but I would not say it that way. When is it used or in which context is frequent this structure?
