Each paper requires a brief abstract not exceeding 150 words summarizing the techniques and main conclusions. AMS subject classifications must accompany all articles. They must be placed at the bottom of page 1 before any other footnotes.

Equations should be centered with the number of the equation placed in parentheses at the right margin. Each figure is to be drafted in high contrast on a separate piece of white paper in a form suitable for photographic reproduction and reduction.
