Manuscript submission with mhd package

Authors are encouraged to submit electronic files. Any software can be used for text and pictures preparation, but LaTeX is preferable. For these purposes, the mhd package is provided. Please submit your contribution as an MS Word, LaTex or pdf file to either e-addresses: aceb@sal.lv , zhuk@sal.lv , sveta@sal.lv  

Site preparation and package installation

To prepare a manuscript for Magnetohydrodynamics, you must have available a working TeX installation, complete with LaTeX, BibTeX, text editor, previewer and any auxiliary applications needed to operate it.  Commercial and shareware TeX distributions for most computers can be found through the TeX Users Group (http://www.tug.org). These distributions usually contain the LaTeX document preparation system upon which our system is based. For Windows users we recommend MikTeX distribution, and teTeX distribution for UNIX compatible systems. teTeX is included in most major Linux distributions such that Red Hat, Linux-Mandrake and SuSE.

Components

The manuscript preparation system for Magnetohydrodynamics consists of the following parts:

  1. Style file mhd.cls;
  2. BibTeX style file mhd.bst;
  3. BibTeX database of Magnetohydrodynamics publications
  4. Sample file mhdsample.tex;
  5. Template file mhd2e.tex

Simple Instalation

The simplest solution requires the copy of  file mhd.cls into the directory where your documents are placed. Keep it there while preparing the document for Magnetohydrodynamics.

Complete Instalation

The complete installation procedure contains following steps:

  1. Create folder mahyd in ../texmf/tex/latex/ and put style file mhd.cls there;
  2. Create folder mahyd in ../texmf/bibtex/bst/ and put BibTeX style file mhd.bst there;
  3. Refresh TeX filename database

Preparation of Publication

How to begin

Start your document with a shell as follows

\documentclass[twoside]{mhd}

Title

In next the title of your contribution should be coded as follows

\title{Your contributed title}

Title should be in sentence style. Capitalized only first and special words. Titles have no end punctation.

Authors and institutions

In next the name(s) of the author(s) names must be given:

\author{author(s) name(s)}

The first name initial is followed by the surname.

Next the address(es) of institute(s), company etc. is (are) required.

\institute{name of institute}

If there are more than one address, the entries are numbered automatically with \and, in the order you type them.

\institute{name of institute}
\and name of next institute
\and name of last institute}

In this case with different affiliations of authors each name has to be followed by \inst{<no>}, where <num> matches the number of institute(s). For example

\author{ F. Author\inst{1}, S. Author\inst{1,2}}

Start article

Document text starts with

\begin{document}

In next the command

\maketitle

formats the complete heading of your article.

Abstract

The abstract is enclosed by \begin{abstract} and \end{abstract}.

Section headings

Section headings are input as in standard LaTeX article syle.

\section{Title text}
\subsection{Title text}

General text

Use directional quotes for quotation marks arround quoted text (``text''), not straight double quotes ("text").

Mathematics

Vectors

Vectors must be typed as bold and slanted. For these purposes the operation \bvec is been introduced and must be used instead of the standard LaTeX \vec or RevTeX \bbox operations.

Vector field operations

Vector field operations must be typed as \Div, \Rot and \Grad.

Citation and References

References are cited in text using the \cite{<key>} command and are listed in the bibliography using the \bibitem{<key>} command. Put the list of references after the main body of the paper using one of two alternative methods.

If you are using BibTeX, give command

\bibliographystyle{mhd}
\bibliography{<bib files>}

where <bib files> is a comma-separated list of BibTeX bibliography database files.

Alternatively, you may use an explicit thebibliography environment:

\begin{thebibliography}{10}

This example includes 4 major types of literature cited: book, article, article in conference proceeding and PHD thesis. In ether case output looks like:
