References should be organized as follows. First initial(s), surname(s) of the author(s) and title of article or book. Then, for papers: title of periodical or collective work, volume number (year of issue), issue number, and numbers of the first and the last page; for books: publisher's name(s), place and year of issue. Example:
- R. E. Kalman: Mathematical description of linear dynamical system. SIAM J. Control. 1(2), (1963), 152-192.
- F. C. Shweppe: Uncertain dynamic systems. Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. 1970.
Please, give full titles of journals; only common words like Journal, Proceedings, Conference, etc. may be abbreviated ( to J., Proc., Conf., ... respectively). References to publications in the body of the manuscript should be indicated by the numbers of the adequate references in square brackets. When the paper is set in TeX the preferable form of preparing references is Bib TeX bib database.
Footnotes should be placed in the manuscript, beginning with "Received..." (date to be filled in by Editor), the author's institutional affiliation and acknowledgement of financial support,, and continuing with numbered references. The number of footnotes should be held to a minimum.
List of symbols containing definitions of all symbols used, enclosed to the manuscript on a separate sheet, is required when the paper is not set in TeX and welcome in other cases.
