SUBMISSION RULES FOR "MATHEMATICAL NOTES"
The Editorial Board of "Mathematical Notes" asks the authors to take the following
rules into account when preparing the papers for the journal.
 Basic Rules
 Articles submitted to the journal must contain no more than
20 pages, while short communications, no more than 5 pages. Short communications must be presented by a member of the Editorial Board.
 The paper must be carefully proofread. All the pages, including tables, biblio graphic references, figures, and figure captions, must be numbered.
 The text of the paper must begin with the title and the name(s) of the author(s)
preceded by initials followed by a short abstract (one paragraph of no more than 15 lines) and keywords (at most 10). The abstract must not contain numbered references
to formulas and bibliography items. The acknowledgments should be given in a special
section "Acknowledgments" at the end of the paper, immediately preceding the final bibliography section.
 The introduction must describe the background to the research presented in the paper and highlight the importance of the results obtained. The paper must contain a bibliography.
 The author data must be given in a separate file. It must contain the full name (first name and surname, in that order) of each author, his/her affiliation, postal address
(with zip code), and email number. Email numbers are used for sending PDF files of
published papers to the authors.
 Papers are submitted via the AllRussia mathematics site "www.mathnet.ru"
using your personal login and code word. Then one must click the "Upload Manuscript"
line and choose the journal "Matematicheskie Zametki/Mathematical Notes" and follow
further instructions. Using the personal access to the site "www.mathnet.ru," authors
can obtain information about the fate of their papers.
 The signing of the temporary transfer of the copyright to Nauka Publishers is a necessary condition for publishing the paper. This covers the period from the submission
date to the publication date. If the paper in question is not accepted, then the temporary
transfer agreement is no longer valid from the day on which the paper was rejected.
 English translations of all papers published in "Matematicheskie Zametki" simultaneously appear in the journal "Mathematical Notes" published by "Pleiades Publishing, Ltd."
The signing of the temporary transfer of the copyright to "Pleiades Publishing, Ltd." is a necessary condition for accepting the paper for publication in "Math. Notes."
Samples of temporary transfer agreements can be found on the site of "MAIK Nauka/Interperiodica." The filledin and signed agreement must be sent by email to the
Editorial Board simultaneously with the PDF and TEX files of the paper.
 Preparation of the files of the paper
 The files of the paper must be prepared in Russian or English on a computer
using the $\LaTeX$ 2_{ε} (AMS$\LaTeX$) system supplemented with the style files "mz2ewin.sty"
and "mzart.sty" (for articles) or "mzsh.sty" (for short communications). In the case of
Russian files, the text will be translated into English for "Math. Notes". These STY
files can be downloaded from the journalâ€™s web site "www.mathnet.ru/MZ/" or obtained
from the Editorial Office "mz@mi.ras.ru". The TEX and PDF files of the paper must be
submitted simultaneously to the Editorial Board. The PDF file must be prepared using
the file "dvi2pdf.exe" (not "pdflatex").
The magnification 1.2 should be used (put \mag1200 in the preamble at the top). The TEX file must contain
only standard TEX commands and standard names for environments and procedures (no
selfmade names and abbreviations!).
 Only Latin and Greek letters should be used in the text and formulas. Displayed
formulas must be presented on separate lines and numbered (on the right) only if they
are referred to in the text of the paper.
 Fractions in inline (nondisplayed) formulas, as well as in the exponents, subscripts, and superscripts, must always be in slashed form, while, in displayed formulas,
they should be given as
$\frac{«numerator»}{«denominator»}.$
It is recommended to present complex formulas containing integrals, sums, products, and
elaborate fractions as displayed formulas (on separate lines).
 Illustrations must be presented in EPS form. The letters and numerals in figures must be
smaller by 1 point than in the main body of the paper.

In proofs, there should be no references to unpublished work. Items in the
bibliography are arranged in order of citation. In references to Russian sources, it
is recommended to cite the number of chapter (Chap.), section (Sec.), or subsection
(Subsec.), rather than the number of the Russian page(s). The command \cite should be
used for references in the text, such as \cite{1}, \cite{2}, each with a single argument,
and \cite{1}, \cite{2}–\cite{5}. Note that here the doublehyphen
() (the socalled
"endash"), not a hyphen (), is used to indicate the range.
A bibliography item dealing with a journal article must contain the names of the
authors (initials and surnames), the full title in quotation marks (this is omitted for short
communications), the name of the journal, volume (in bold), issue (in parentheses), the
first and last pages separated by a doublehyphen
() (the doublehyphen and last page
are omitted for short communications), and the year (in parentheses). Note that the
Cyrillic names of Russian journals are transliterated, not translated.
A bibliography item dealing with a book must contain the names of the authors
(initials and surnames), the full title (in italic), the name of the publishing house, the
name of the city where the publishing house is located, and the year of publication, as
well as some additional items, such as the number and title of volume, the name of the
editor, etc. Preprints and dissertations are considered as books for which the name of
the university or institute must be given (instead of the publishing house). For preprints,
also their number must be given. Note that the Russian names of books, preprints, and
dissertations are translated and the phrase "in Russian" is added at the end of the item.

Follow the pattern of the bibliography in the example given above. In the text,
use \cite for references to the bibliography, e.g., \cite{1}–\cite{4}, \cite[Theorem 1, Lemma 5]{5}. Also write a string of individual references, such as \cite{1}, \cite{3},
\cite{5}, NOT combining them into a single \cite of the form \cite{1, 3, 5}!!! The
references in the Bibliography must be listed in order of their appearance in the text.
 More details on the TEX file for "Math. Notes"
The TEX file must not use nonstandard (selfmade) commands. Since we use the batch
(simultaneous) compilation of more than 30 papers of the double issue of the journal,
all papers must contain only STANDARD $\LaTeX$ 2_{ε} (AMS$\LaTeX$) commands, so that
there will be no clash between the selfmade commands (macros) of different authors.
The LOG file must not contain complaints about "undefined" and/or "multiply defined"
labels; this is unacceptable.
The American spelling is used in "Math. Notes." In TEX files, the quotation marks
should be written as "..." and the symbols of the period (full stop) and comma should
be put inside the quotation marks (e.g., "A," "B," and "C"). Note that the endash
(–), not the hyphen (), is used to indicate the range, e.g., pp. 1–4, and also to
separate individual parts, such as "Euler–Bernoulli law" (two persons) in contrast to
"LennardJones potential" (one person). Also note the modern usage: "A and B", but
"A, B, and C." The initials of persons should be separated by an interval, like A.^{~}N.^{~}Kolmogorov (the tie^{~} prevents the following letter(s) from slipping to the next line of text).
Note that, for easy editing (by both editors and special programs), it is advisable
to limit the length of your lines on the screen by position 60–80 by pressing "Enter"
("Return") to effectively end the current line (and not to make your line "infinite" in the
TEX file), thus avoiding the use of word wrap to break lines of text. This request is due
to the fact that the programs we are using to process your TEX files do not like very
long ("infinite") sequences not containing "hard returns" before position 80 or 90.
We ask you to submit your paper with the standard Math. Notes preamble and use,
for formulas, the standard AMS$\LaTeX$ commands (equation, gather, align, instead
of eqnarray, array, multline, etc., and theorem, lemma, corollary, remark, etc., for
environments). The layout of formulas must conform as closely as possible to that
used in publications of the American Mathematical Society. Never use \frac in the text,
only in displayed formulas; thus, on lines of the text, the fraction
\$\frac{a+b}{c+d}\$
must be written in slashed form as
\$(a+b)/(c+d)\$. The "slashed" form of fractions must
also be used in exponents. Do not use the "rough" commands "\left" and "\right" before
the delimiters. Use \bigg (\biggl ...\biggr) whenever \frac or big operators like \int,
\sum, \prod, etc., are enclosed by delimiters in displayed formulas. The differentials
in integrals should be set off by \, like this:
\int_a^b f(x,y)\,dx\,dy. In tables and
displayed formulas, we ask you to put the formatting commands on separate lines, at
their beginning. Note that the letters and numerals in figures (EPS) must be
smaller by 1 point than in the main body of the paper.
