On Abstracts

Abstract:  a brief summary of the contents of a 
  technical report, usually placed at the beginning 
  (typically 100-300 words)

Abstracts are often distributed separately from the 
paper so it should not include any abbreviated expressions
explained in the paper or references to the bibliography.

Note:  Abstracts are not the introduction section
of a paper.
