  • Scientific style: please use the standard mathematical notation for formulae, symbols (e.g. Italic for single letters that denote mathematical constants, variables, and unknown quantities; regular (not italic) bold face to denote vectors).
  • The running text of body of the paper should be followed by figures and tables; their exact placement should be indicated in the text or on the left-hand margin.
  • Figures should be drawn clearly in black, printed or photocopied. Dense distribution of details in figures and tables should be avoided. Figures, tables and photographs should be numbered consecutively according to their reference in text.
