 ["GROWTH-FORMATION NUMBERS" AND EXPLANATION OF PLAIN QUESTIONS]. WANG YUCHUAN. journal of beijing college of traditional chinese medicine. 1992;15(4):10 (chi*).
 This paper analysed the properties of "growth-formation numbers" (G-F Numbers) doctrine, explored the process through which this doctrine formed, and evaluated its value in the explanation of Plain Question. The author considered this doctrine to be ancient chinese atomism which was created by Yin-yang School and revised later on by Five-Elements school to be the commonly called "G-F numbers of five elements". The purpose by which ancient chinese applied these G-F Numbers was to reveal unities of everything in universe (including the human body) and to explore the rules of their movements. This helped the establishment of TCM theories and had deep influences on its development. G-F Numbers are a series of abstract ones, but they were erroneously considered by some ancient doctors to be concrete. They attempted to utilise these numbers to explain certain statements in Plain Questions, for example, to explain the judgments of progress of viscera disease, to explain the prediction of date of death, but they failed. In Plain questions and other classic books the opinions are inconsistent with, and sometimes contradictory to each other.

 [DYNASTIC CHANGES AND FIVE ZANG ORGANS SACRIFICE ARE THE ERROR OF MEDICAL HISTORY RESEARCH]. WANG YUCHUAN. journal of beijing college of traditional chinese medicine. 1992;15(5):12 (chi*).

 [THE "NEW COLLATION" IS NOT MADE BY "LIN YI"]. WANG YUCHUAN. journal of beijing university of traditional chinese medicine. 1998;21(2):2 (chi*).
 The term "new collation"was used by those collators in Northern Song Dynasty as one of headings when they made correction and annotations to the book entitled Plain Questions, Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic. Since Ming and Qing dynasties, all the scholars in TCM have held that the content under the heading is from Lin Yi and others, and so the heading has also been called "Lin’ s collation" . The author of this paper points out for the first time, that the "new collation" is one of the headings used by Sum Zhao when he made collation and annotations to the book entitled Plain Questions, Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic with Supplements and Annotations by Lin Yi and others. Sun Ciao used the heading in order to distinguish his works from those done by Lin Yi and others. Necessary proofs are offered by the author in this paper to support his viewpoint.
