    per or as per

    I am trying to describe a theory proposed by a paper, and I am not sure whether I should 'per' or 'as per'. And what's the exact meaning of the correct usage? Does it mean 'according to' (which is my understanding, although I am not sure...)? It would be great if I could get some help here. Thanks!

    ...the theory per Sun et al. (2000)
    ...the theory as per Sun et al. (2000)

    Re: per or as per

    They are essentially the same. They do, generally, mean "according to" and that is the phrase I would use.
