*Manuscript Style :*Manuscripts (including bibliographies, tables, etc.) should be typed double spaced on A4 size white paper with 1 inch (2.5 cm.) margins on all sides with font size 11 pt., preferably in LaTeX. While typing in LaTeX, the following Preamble be used as is required of the Press :

**\documentclass[10pt]{amsart}**

\usepackage{amsfonts,amssymb,amscd,amsmath,enumerate,verbatim,calc}

\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2}

\textwidth=11.5cm

\textheight=19.5cm

\topmargin=0.5cm

\oddsidemargin=0.5cm

\evensidemargin=0.5cm

\pagestyle{plain}

\usepackage{amsfonts,amssymb,amscd,amsmath,enumerate,verbatim,calc}

\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2}

\textwidth=11.5cm

\textheight=19.5cm

\topmargin=0.5cm

\oddsidemargin=0.5cm

\evensidemargin=0.5cm

\pagestyle{plain}

Sections should appear in the following order : Title Page, Abstract, Text, Notes and References. Comments or replies to previously published articles should also follow this format with the exception of abstracts.

**The Title page should include the manuscript title, authors’ names & permanent affiliations and the name, address & e-mail address of the author to whom page proofs and reprints are required to be sent.**

*Title Page:***The following page should include an abstract of not more than 100 words, a list of two to six key words and AMS subject classification (2000).**

*Abstract:***The text of the manuscript should begin on a new page. The introduction should have heading number 1. Subsequent section headings (including appendices) should be designated by Hindu-Arabic numerals (2,3,…etc.) and subsection headings should be numbered 2.1, 2.2, etc. Figures, tables and displayed equations should be numbered consecutively throughout the text (1, 2,… etc.). Equation numbers should appear flush left in parentheses and running variables for equation (e.g., i =1,2,…, n) flush right in parentheses.**

*Text:***Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the Authors. References in the text be indicated by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text. Example: “… as mentioned in [2, 8]. Ramanujan [9] obtained the following result …”. In the list, the references should be numbered in the order in which they appear in the text.**

*References:*Examples:

Reference to a journal publication:

1. G. Birkhoff, Neutral elements in general lattices,

Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 46 (1940), 702 – 705.

Reference to a book:

1. J. Munkres, Elements of Algebraic Topology,

Addison–Wesley, 1984.

**Originals for illustrations should be sharp and of good contrast. Each Figure and Table should be mentioned in the text and numbered consecutively using Hindu-Arabic numerals. For each Figure and Table, its desired location in the text should be clearly specified. Each Figure and Table must have a caption. Example of proper style for captions : “Figure 1” or “Table 1”. Suggested Figure formats are : TIFF, GIF, EPS, PPT and Postscript. Files should be at least 300 dpi.**

*Illustration Style:*

*Copyright:***Copy right of the articles published in the Journal or the Student lies with the Indian Mathematical Society.**

**Authors of the papers printed in the Journal and the Student are entitled to 50 reprints free of charge. Additional copies (in integral multiples of 50) will be supplied at cost if orders are placed at the time of proof correction.**

*Reprints:***In case of any query, the concerned Editor may be contacted.**
