Name of author, year, title, name of journal, volume and page number. For example:Maslina D. & Thomas D.K. 2000. The Fekete-Szego theorem for strongly close-to-convex functions. *Scientiae Mathematicae* **3**(2): 201-212.

Shaharir M.Z. 2002. *Fungsi Matematik Teritlak*. Bangi: Penerbit Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

## EQUATION / MATHEMATICAL SENTENCES

Equations and mathematical symbols, or sentences should follow the correct format. Mathematical equations can be prepared using MathType. A single mathematical symbol, or sentence can be included by inserting the symbols in Ms-Word. Each mathematical symbol should begin at the first tab after skipping one line. If referred to in the text, equations should be numbered in brackets and right aligned.

## USE OF (…) SYMBOL

For 'and so on', particularly in mathematical sentences, the conventional standard three dots (…) should be used.
For example: The equation
is true for *x* = 1, 2, 3, … . The fourth dot in this example which
is of one space distance from the other three dots is the full stop.

## DIAGRAM / ILLUSTRATION
