Instruction To Authors

1. General

Authors are strongly encouraged to prepare and submit their manuscripts electronically, using the LATEX package. Authors are also encouraged to submit Encapsulated PostScript (“.eps”) files for figures in both electronic and nonelectronic papers. Authors should ensure that laser-printed originals of these figures are of high quality and suitable for scanning.

2. Style

Paper must be written in English. Authors who are unfamiliar with English should obtain help from colleagues proficient in that language. While a polished literary style is not demanded of scientific papers, they should conform to the elementary rules of grammar, syntax, punctuation, and clarity.

Observance of the following guidelines will prevent some common errors :

  1. should normally be mentioned explicitly by number and appear in correct numerical order in the body of the text. That is, Tables 1, 2, 3, and 4 must each be mentioned in the text at least once, and the first mention of Table 3 should not precede the first mention of Table 2.
  2. The reference list and text citations should agree and be accurate. All references cited in the text must appear in the reference list, and all references listed in the reference list must be cited in the text.
  3. Acronyms and abbreviations should be spelled out the first time they are used unless they are common throughout the discipline. Terms defined in the abstract should be defined independently in the main text.
  4. Avoid beginning sentences with a symbol, number, or lowercase letter.

3. Manuscript Components

The manuscript should consist of the following elements :
Author(s) name affiliation and e-mail address
Keywords and phrases
AMS (2010) Subject Classification
Short title
Appendices (if any)
Figures with figure legends (if any)
Tables (if any)
The reference section tables and figures should begin on a new page. In electronically submitted manuscripts, figures and figure legends may be placed together and figures and tables may be set in the body of the text, but separate .eps files should also be provided for each figure. In paper manuscripts, tables, figures, and figure legends should be placed at the end of the manuscript.

4. Abstract

The abstract should concisely summarize the content and conclusions of the paper. The abstract should be a single paragraph of not more than 250 words, and should not contain reference citations.

5. References
