(Also see production header)
1. Check the author's (or authors's) name and address.
2. The title should be ALL CAPS.
3. Check headings.
i. The author's name should be given in full unless there
are several authors and the resulting heading would be
too long - then first initial and last name only.
ii. Capitalize in the "markboth title" using the usual convention
for capitalization in titles - all important words are
capitalized.
4. The cover author line should be the same as the author listing on the
first page. The cover title should capitalize only the first word and
proper names.
NEW
5. The cover title should us the usual convention for
capitalization in titles. See 3. ii.
REVISED
6. The email address should appear at the end of the author
listing on the
first page and be as "e-mail: {\tt humke@stolaf.edu}"
7. The date received is listed.
8. The AMS Classification number(s) (are) is listed.
REVISED
8. Make sure the preamble contains the lines
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsthm}
\firstpagenumber{1}
%\coverauthor
%\covertitle
\received
\MathReviews
\markboth{}{}
\title
change all \begin{proof} to \begin{proof}[{\sc Proof.}]
(see production header for details)
9. Listing Keywords is optional.
10. In the body of the paper use one of our 4 styles that most closely
adhears to the style the author used.
I. Paper divided into sections.
(a) Assertions and definitions numbered separately.
(b) Assertions and definitions numbered as a group.
II. No sections
(a) Assertions and definitions numbered separately.
(b) Assertions and definitions numbered as a group.
NEW
11. Assertions to be proved should use \theoremstyle{plain}. But
definitions, remarks, questions and other assertions not to be proved
should be set in \theoremstyle{definition}. StandardMacros.tex
has all possibilities. One must separate which are to be plain and
which are to be in definition style. Also \newtheorem* generates
a theorem environment that doesn't number the theorem. For example
\newtheorem*{ZL}{Zorn's Lemma} in the preamble will produce a theorem
called Zorn's Lemma with no number when \begin{ZL} \end{ZL} is typed.
12. Use \pf for proof. (\pf is defined in StandardMacros.tex.)
REVISED
13. Use blackboard bold fonts for reals, naturals, integers, rationals,
etc. (Commands for all of these are in StandardMacros.tex. However,
\Bbb must be changed to \mathbb.)
REVISED
14. Use \qed to denote the end of a proof. To put an end of proof symbol
at the end of a displayed equation, type \tag*{\qed} before the
command ending the equation.
15. Eliminate as much white space from the document as possible. Delete
\*skip commands and unnecessary displayed formulas.
16. Freely edit the text to conforn to standard English.
17. Put bibliographic references in the following forms. (Note: all
hyphens
should be of the -- variety.)

NEW
18. For math operators such as dim, cl, int, diam, supp, etc. use the
command \DeclareMathOperator{dim}{dim}. There are options for this
command that can be found in the AMS-LaTeX User's Guide available
on line from the AMS.
NEW
19. Use the usual convention for capitalizations for section titles.
NEW
20. For characteristic function with a subscript, use the following
command.
\newcommand{\charf}[1]{\mbox{\raise.48ex\hbox{$\chi$}$_{#1}$}}
Then $\charf[E] will give chi subscripted with E. The chi is
higher than the \chi character which makes it look better.
NEW
21. Be sure to insert \, before every differential, dx, dt, d\mu, etc.
NEW
22. Change all \begin{eqnarray} to \begin{align} or one of its
variations.
NEW
23. The commands \bigl, \biggl, \Bigl, and \Biggl are preferable to
\left. Likewise for \right.
