American Mathematical Society; Proceedings of the AMS

ISSN 1088-6826

Journal overview: This journal is devoted to shorter

research articles (not to exceed 10 printed pages) in all

areas of pure and applied mathematics. To be published in

the Proceedings, a paper must be correct, new, and

significant. Further, it must be well written and of

interest to a substantial number of mathematicians.

Piecemeal results, such as an inconclusive step toward an

unproved major theorem or a minor variation on a known

result,are in general not acceptable for publication. Very

short notes not to exceed 2 printed pages are also

accepted and appear under the heading Shorter Notes. Items

deemed suitable include an elegant new proof of an important

and well-known theorem, an illuminating example or

counterexample, or a new viewpoint on familiar results. New

results, if of a brief and striking character, might also be

acceptable, though in general a paper which is merely very

short will not be suitable for the Shorter Notes department.

Longer papers may be submitted to the Transactions of the

American Mathematical Society. Published pages are the same

size as those generated in the style files provided for

AMS-LaTeX or AMS-TeX.
