# Planetary Ring Systems: Author Information

Index: We are required by the publisher to provide an index for the book. We can make this task much easier if we proactively mark potentially index-worthy terms during the writing process. Please do this in your LaTeX source files by using the \index tag, as described in cplslargeguide.pdf . See also these guides for indexing in MSWord and indexing in LaTeX.

Glossary: The 1984 Planetary Rings book had a glossary in the back, and we should do the same. Please include with your chapter draft a page including your suggested additions to the glossary. To avoid duplication, there is no need to draft definitions at this time; we’ll do that later.

Mathematical Notation Standard: To make things easier for the reader, we would like to have a single standard for mathematical notation. For those of you using mathematical notation in your chapters, 1) for variables already in this table, please either conform your usage to the table or communicate with the editors to suggest changes to the standard, and 2) for variables not yet in this table, please send your additions to me.
The table is given here in PDF format (for easy reading) and in TEX format (so that you can use the same LaTeX coding for each variable).
