Abstract and summary. Abstract written in one paragraph up to 0.5 pp. In an extremely condensed form it presents the essence of the work and the results achieved. Summary which concludes the article should contain a generalization of the results achieved, without repeating the annotation and not limited to a simple repetition of what has been done in the work.

The content of the article All scientific articules should be presented in a clear and structured way, including introduction, where current state of the problem and importance of the solution is highlighed.

The journal publishes articles of 10 to 20 pages (plus list of references). It's recommended to include no more than 8 graphs or tables.

Tables and illustrations. All tables and figures placed in the article (drawings, diagrams, charts, computer printouts, diagrams, photographs) should be referred in the text as a link. Each illustration should have a meaningful name and number. Use sequentially numbered (in Arabic numerals) within the article, independently for figures and tables. It is recommended to minimize the number of figures and tables.

Tables are numbered, if their number is more than one. Title is required when the table has a significant value, no heading of the table which provides only auxiliary info. If there is no data in the column it should be filled with a dash. Numerical data in the tables shouldn't be accompanied by the unit value, the latter should be put in the text outset, the column title or the name of the table.

Only sequential numbers can be used. Explanation of symbols in the formula (explication) is given in the order in which they are used in the formula.

Numbers Re, Fr, St, Pr et al., signs of mathematical functions (sin, ctg, arcsin, ..., sh, Arsh, grad, rot, div, lim, exp, ln, lg, etc.), chemical elements and compounds (Cu, H-O-H, C2H5OH), as well as const definitions are put with the usual (non italic) font.
The legend of the values ​​of the upper and lower indices may not use the letters of the Russian alphabet.
