a) Title is to be informative and as brief as possible while clearly defining the subject covered by the paper.

b) Authorship is to give author's name: first name initial if any, and surname in that order and the mailing address where work was carried out. If the present address is different, indicate this in a footnote.

2) Abstract is to be clear and concise giving scope and purpose, significant results and conclusions. Length is not to exceed 200 words for Papers and 100 words for

Short Communications.

3) Manuscripts should be typed in double spacing on the basis of about 50 letters a line. Three copies and original drawings of graphs are submitted to the Editorial Office for review.

a) Consult recent issues for general style of text.

b) Introduction is to explain the nature of problem, the background, the purpose and the contribution of the work.

c) Text is to contain primary information with clear indication of the line of thought and of mathematical development.

d) Conclusion is to indicate significant contribution with its limitations, advantages and possible extensions.

e) Nomenclature should appear at the end of each paper. Symbols and units are listed in alphabetical order with indication of their meanings and dimensions. A Literature references should be numbered and listed together at the end of the paper in IEEE Reference style, not in the footnotes. Give complete information as in following examples:

b) Appendix is as needed to explain mathematical details.

4) Figures

Drawings for figures must be submitted  in black and white at high resolution (300 dpi). The appropriate placement of each figure in the text should be indicated in the margin and equations be contained to one column in width.

5) Tables should be made part of the text. Use only one grid for all tables in the manuscript.
