Re: How to write Technical Papers (IEEE-Format)/White Papers
Well, I will try to give you some hints.

You should divide the paper in (at least) five parts:
* section 1: Abstract
Here you should try to formulate 4..6 sentences which give an overview over the (a) reason resp. background and (b) over the main results of your investigations/analyses. This section shall give an idea to the reader if he feels concerned or not.
Important: Don't give details (figures, formulas); just state that - for example - a new formula is given in section 3.
*section 2: Introduction:
This part must explain and describe in detail (a) again the background for your work (state of the art and why you think that our work makes sense) and (b) give an overview over the most important publications that deal with the same subject (with references). This part (b) is a very important one because it must show that you are informed about the present state - as far as the subject of your work is concerned. A third part (c) gives an overview over the following section 3 (just mention some sub-sections like "linear analysis", non-linear analysis", "time response", "main results", "visual verification", "summary")
*section 3: (Title similar to the main title of the paper)
Must include the sub-sections as mentioned in section 2.
*section 4: Conclusions
Similar to section 1 (may include some repetitions), but a bit more detailed. It is important to stress again the advantages and new results of your work. This section should not contain more than 10..20 sentences.
Important: Don't give details (no figures, formulas,...). Just state in words that you have found a new proof or something like that.
*section 5: References
A listing of all used referenced papers according to the order they are mentioned in your text.
