Second page:
  A self-contained abstract/summary/resume of up to 150 words, describing the research objective and its conclusions

Figures should be high-quality grayscale graphics (please, do not use colors): vector drawings (with text converted to curves) or 300 dpi bitmaps. Please do not supply any graphics copied from a website, as the resolution will be too low. In all figures taken or adapted from other sources, a brief note to that effect is obligatory, below the figure. One sentence at least referring to the illustration is obligatory.

Mathematical expressions should be numbered on the right side, while all variables and parameters must be defined.
