English. Introductory material, including a review of the literature, should not exceed what is necessary to indicate the reason for the work and the essential background. Authors are advised to note the typographical conventions and layout of headings, tables and illustrations exemplified in recent issues of the Journal. Strict observance of these and the following requirements will shorten the interval between submission and publication. Manuscripts. The original and one copy of the
more » ... should be typed three lines to an inch throughout on good quality paper. The marginal space on the left-hand side should not be less than one and a half inches. All pages of the manuscript must be numbered consecutively, including those containing references, tables and captions to illustrations, which are to be placed after the text. Title. This should be concise and appropriately informative for retrieval by modem searching techniques. If the paper is one of a numbered series, a reference to the previous part should be given as a footnote on the first page. If a part not yet published should be consulted for a proper understanding of the paper, a copy of the manuscript should be supplied to assist the referees. Abstract. This should state concisely the scope of the work and the principal findings, and should be suitable for direct use by abstracting journals; this will seldom require more than 200 words. Footnotes within the text should be used only when essential. They should be placed within horizontal rules immediately under the lines to which they refer. Rtiferences are cited in the text by the author and date and are not numbered. Authors are referred to recent issues for the style used in the Journal for citing references to books, periodicals and other literature. Titles of published papers are not included, but the reference to any paper accepted for publication but not yet published must include the title. No editorial responsibility can be taken for the accuracy of the references; authors are requested to check these with special care. All references in the text must be listed, with the names of authors arranged alphabetically; all entries in this list must correspond to references in the text. Abbreviations of titles of periodicals should conform to those used by Chemical Abstracts. Units. Authors will be encouraged to assist in the general adoption of the International System of Units (Systeme International d'Unites). SI units should be used for exact measurements of physical quantities and as far as practical elsewhere. Mathematical formulae should be carefully typed with symbols in correct alignment and adequately spaced. At least two clear lines should be left above and below all displayed equations. If special symbols must be hand-written, they should be inserted with care and identified by pencilled notes in the margins. Judicious use should be made of the solidus to avoid two-line mathematical expressions wherever possible and especially in the running text. All long formulae should be displayed. Vectors should be indicated by single underlinings (not overhead arrows). Tables should be numbered with arabic numerals and be accompanied by a title. They should be arranged having regard to the dimensions of the printed page, and the number of columns should be kept to a minimum. Long headings to columns should be avoided by the use of explanatory footnotes. Each table must be referred to in the text and its approximate position should be indicated in the margin of the manuscript. Only in exceptional circumstances will presentation of essentially the same data in tabular and graphical form be permitted; where adequate, the latter form should be used. Illustrations. The originals and two copies are required. The originals must not be lettered; copies should be lettered with ink. Half-tone illustrations and line drawings are to be numbered in a common sequence and their approximate position should be indicated in the margin of the text. A typed list of caption~ is required. Line drawings must be drawn with black ink on board, drawing or tracing paper, or plastic sheet. Authors should note the size of comparable drawings in recent issues of the Journal and submit originals that are three times as large. In this case the axes and curves should be not less than 0·6 mm thick and of uniform density. Symbols should be 3-4 mm across. Allowance should be made for the effect of reduction on dots and stipples. Drawings must not exceed 35 cm in either dimension. If the originals are larger than this they should be photographically reduced and good quality prints twice the estimated final size should be submitted. Photographic prints for half-tone reproduction must be of the highest quality with a full range of tones and good contrast. They should be trimmed to exclude features not relevant to the paper. 1.i.75 Aust. Abstract A descriptive review is given of gauge theories of weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions. The strong interactions are interpreted in terms of an unbroken Yang-Mills gauge theory based on SU(3) colour symmetry of quarks and gluons. The confinement mechanism of quarks, gluons and other nonsinglets is discussed. The unification of the weak and electromagnetic interactions through a broken Yang-Mills gauge theory is described. In total the basic constituents are then the quarks, leptons and gauge bosons.
