Instructions for Authors for typesetting manuscripts 
for Publicationes Mathematicae Debrecen

General information

Authors may submit their manuscripts either in hardcopy by mail, or in electronic format via e-mail. In case of mail submission Authors are asked to present their paginated manuscripts in three copies and a further copy should be kept by the author. The Redaction acknowledges the receipt of the manuscript and gives its registration number, to which authors should be referred at any correspondence. Authors are requested to supply us with their e-mail address and to inform the redaction about any change of their postal address. Giving a correct and controlled 5 characters AMS subject classification being in accordance with the key words is of great importance.  

If an author refers to sources which have not appeared yet, then he should attach two copies of the cited source(s) to the manuscript. Papers should be written in English, French or German, and supplied with an abstract. Format of the manuscript, especially that of the References should follow the previous issues of the journal. Chinese authors should be cited with complete first and middle names. Formulas must be filled in clearly. Authors are asked to write the manuscript in LaTeX and attach a printing file (PDF, or PS format) at submission. After acception, Authors are asked to send the LaTeX source file using the style file publmathdeb.cls to the Redaction.  

Authors receive one set of proofs for correction, and 25 free reprints for each paper plus the PDF file of printed paper. Additional reprints may be purchased at a reasonable cost. Postal address of the Redaction is:

Publicationes Mathematicae Debrecen
Institute of Mathematics
University of Debrecen
H-4002 Debrecen, P.O. Box 400
Hungary
Our e-mail address is

Instructions for using PublMathDeb document class (required after acception)

System requirements
For using the PublMathDeb document class of Publicationes Mathematicae Debrecen for typesetting manuscripts Authors need

  • an arbitrary TeX distribution has to be installed on their computers including
    • LaTeX 2e and
    • amsmath package
  • the publmathdeb.cls file in the current or in a standard TeX input directory
Downloads
Authors can dowload the publmathdeb.cls document class
Authors can use it with the standard commands and environments of
  • the standard LaTeX 2e (download) and
  • the standard amsmath package
TeX distributions and macro packages can be downloaded from any of the CTAN servers, e.g.
DANTE -- Germany
TeX on-line catalogue (University of Florida, USA)
or from the home pages of the various TeX distributions. For finding the appropriate TeX distribution you can go e.g. to
http://tex.loria.fr/english/distributions.html
Other macro packages/files used for typeset articles
If Authors use any other macro packages than the publmathdeb, or their own macro files they are asked
  • to inform us about the web address(es) from where the files can be downloaded

  • or
  • to enclose the files themselves in the article

when sending the source file of the manuscript to the Editor.

Documentations
Authors can use the documentations of the standard LaTeX 2e, the standard article document class and that of the amsmath package, because the PublMathDeb document class uses the same commands and environments.

These documentations can be found in the docs directory of the TeX distributions and on any of the CTAN servers, e.g.

Authors Packages for Publishing with the AMS -- Documentation
DANTE -- Germany
TeX on-line catalogue (University of Florida, USA)

How to typeset articles using PublMathDeb.cls
You can us the standard commands and environments of LaTeX 2e and of the amsart document class.

In this part you can find some help for begin the work with the PublMathDeb document class.
Here you can find information about giving the format of the article.

1. Document class and other packages
The PublMathDeb document class can be loaded with the standard \documentclass command, the amsmath package with the standard \usepackage command:

\documentclass[draft]{publmathdeb}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amssymb}
IMPORTANT
If Authors use any other macro package(s) they are asked to enclose all of these files in the manuscript or to specify the web address(es) where they can be downloaded from.

Title section
  • Title

  • Between square brackets, as the first optional parameter of \title command, Authors can give a short title that will be appeared in the headlines. Between braces the title of the article has to be given. For example:
    \title[On Hamilton spaces of 2-dimensional\dots ]
          {On Hamilton spaces of 2-dimensional Riemannian manifolds}
  • Keywords and expressions

  • Some key words and expressions have to be given for the article, e.g.
\keywords{manifolds, Hamilton spaces, Riemannian manifolds}
  • AMS Subject Classification Code(s)

  • At least one AMS subject classification is needed for the article, e.g.
    \subjclass{58C35, 58A40, 57R40}
  • Date of submission
\submitted{February 26, 2003}
  • Dedication

    \begin{document}
    and the abstract follows:
    \begin{abstract}
    The aim of this sample article is to describe how to use the \textsf{PublMathDeb} document class for writing papers for Publicationes Mathematicae Debrecen.
    Authors are asked to write 4--6 lines as an abstract that will be accessible from our web pages.
    \end{abstract}
Title part After giving the previous data the
    \maketitle

command writes them out on the paper.

3. Environment definitions

  • Proofs

  • Three environments for proofs are defined in the document class. They can be used as follows:
    \begin{proof}
    The first part of the claim follows from...
    The square proof closing symbol appears at the end of the proof.
    \end{proof}
\begin{proof}[Proof of Lemma 4]
The first part of the claim follows from...
The square proof closing symbol appears at the end of the proof.
\end{proof}
    \begin{pf}
    The first part of the claim follows from...
    The square proof closing symbol does not appear at the end of the proof.
    \end{pf}
    \begin{pf*}{Proof of Lemma 4}
    If the proof has an own name.
    The square proof closing symbol does not appear at the end of the proof.
    \end{pf*}
  • Styles for numbering environments

  • You can use 3 types of environment styles for defining numbering environments:
For statements, e.g. for lemmas, theorems:
\theoremstyle{plain}
For definitions:
\theoremstyle{definition}
For remarks, examples, notes, algorithms etc.:
\theoremstyle{remark}
  • Defining new environments

  • Some examples for defining environment with various types and styles:
    • Numbering environments
    \theoremstyle{plain}
    If you do not need the section number included in the item number:
    \newtheorem{prop}{Proposition}
    If the item number has to consist the section number followed by the number of the theorem:
    \newtheorem{thm}{Theorem}[section]
    If you need to get the theorems and lemmas to share the same numbering sequence:
    \newtheorem{lem}[thm]{Lemma}
    If you want the item numbers to be counted separately:
    \newtheorem{state}{State}[section]
\theoremstyle{definition}
\newtheorem{definition}{Definition}[section]
    \theoremstyle{remark}
    \newtheorem{remark}{Remark}[section]
    \newtheorem{example}{Example}
    • Unnumbered environments
As the above with just one difference:
If you put a star (*) after the \newtheorem command, the environment will be unnumbered, e.g.
\theoremstyle{remark}
\newtheorem*{note}{Note}
\theoremstyle{plain}
\newtheorem*{hth}{Henk's Theorem}

4. Document body

In the body of the article the commands and environments can be used in a general way.
Here is a sample page for showing the text formatting commands and environments.

\section{Introduction}
The \textsf{publmathdeb.cls} is a modified version of the \textsf{article.cls}, i.e., you can use the same commands and environments defined in the \textsf{article.cls}. If you load the file of the \textsf{amsmath} package you can use the standard commands and environment of the \textsf{amsmath} package.
 
\subsection{Theorems, lemmas, and other types of propositions}
In this subsection the use of the environments of various types of propositions, and the proofs  is presented.

\begin{thm}[see e.g.\  \cite{Kim}]

Environments for formatting emphasized parts of the document if and only if they are defined by the appropriate command.
\end{thm}

\begin{lem}

\TeX\ contains a number of commands for writing mathematical formulae.
\end{lem}
\begin{hth}
\TeX\ contains a number of commands for writing mathematical formulae.
\end{hth}
\subsection{Proofs}
\begin{pf}
The square proof closing symbol appears at the end of the proof.
\end{pf}

\begin{pf*}{Proof of Lemma 4}
The square proof closing symbol appears at the end of the proof.
\end{pf*}

\begin{proof}

The square proof closing symbol does not appear at the end of the proof.
\end{proof}
\subsection{Definitions, remarks, examples etc.}
\begin{definition}
Let $x \in \mathbb{N}$. We denote \dots
\end{definition}
\begin{note}
The previous definition...
\end{note}

5. In-line math formulas

Please, do not use extra space around in-line math formulas.
Correct use:

Let  $x$  be a non-negative number. If  $ f(x) < 0 $  then...
or
Let  \( x \)  be a non-negative number. If  \( f(x) < 0 \)  then...

6. Bibliographic references Commands of bibliographic references

  \by  author
  \paper title of the paper
  \paperinfo
