I want to express the following information in one sentence:

D-S D-P stand for difference of probability between the best and the second best match. D-R stand for difference of Reverse between the best and the second best match.

I wrote it as "D-S, D-R and D-P stand for difference of similarity, reverse and probability between the best and the second best match, respectively." Is this correct?

  • You seem to have left out most of the first sentence, although it's probably possible to reconstruct it. Better to include that the way you wrote it, though. – Nathan Tuggy Dec 21 '15 at 8:44
  • The second sentence does not seem to match the first one, and I don't understand the terminology you are using. That said, the way you used "respectively" seems proper. – laugh Dec 23 '15 at 23:32

Commonly you would sort them in alphabetical order, so D-P, D-R, D-S. I would go with:

D-P, D-R and D-S stand for the (D)ifference of (P)robability, (R)everse and (S)imilarity between the best and the second best match.

This appears to be leaving out some important data as to what/where the Best and Second Best Match is drawn from. I assume the reader will know this.
