The Policy of the Advance Studies in
Pure Mathematics series

1. Each volume in the ASPM series should be an "up-tp-date guide of
lasting interest to advanced mathematics" containing good surveys of
the area covered, not being merely a collection of individual articles
or proceedings.

2. All the articles and surveys in a volume should be refered. The
editors must state explicitely in the preface that all the articles are
in final form and not submitted for publications elsewhere.

3. Each volume should be within 500 pages, with the body in 450 pages
or less.

4. The American Mathematical Society is in charge of the distribution
of the ASPM volumes outside Japan, while Mathematical Society of Japan
is in charge of their distribution inside Japan. Unless the American
Mathematical Society agrees to distribute not less that 150 copies of a
volume, its publication in the ASPM series is canceled.
