The Abraham Zelmanov Journal
The journal for General Relativity, gravitation and cosmology
About the Journal
This journal is named after Abraham Zelmanov (1913-1987), a prominent scientist working in the General Theory of Relativity and cosmology, whose main goal was the mathematical apparatus for calculation of the physical observable quantities in the General Theory of Relativity (it is also known as the theory of chronometric invariants). He also developed the basics of the theory of an inhomogeneous anisotropic universe, and the classification of all possible models of cosmology which could be theoretically conceivable in the space-time of General Relativity (the Zelmanov classification). He also introduced the Anthropic Principle and the Infinite Relativity Principle in cosmology. A short biographic essay about Zelmanov is published in Volume 1 of the Journal (2008).
The main idea of this journal is to publish most creative works on relativity produced by the modern authors, and also the legacy of the classics which was unaccessed in English before. This journal therefore is targeted for submissions containing a valuable result in the General Theory of Relativity, gravitation, cosmology, and also the related themes from physics, mathematics, and astronomy. All submitted papers should be in good English, and be designed in LaTeX format using our LaTeX template. (The list of software needed to type LaTeX is shown on the right side of this page.) The typeset LaTeX file(s) should be submitted to the Editor.
This journal is a non-commercial, academic edition. It is printed from private donations (we are welcome to donations which could support the journal; contact the Editor for the current information on this subject). Upon publication, the authors of each paper will be sent 3 copies of the journal (the authors are requested to pay postal charges dependent on the location), whilst any academic library can register for the printed copies of the journal free of charge. To order printed issues, contact the Editor.
At present, publishing The Abraham Zelmanov Journal is posponed. We currently do not consider new submissions. We offer to redirect all submissions to Progress in Physics, the journal of physics containing a substantial part of publications on General Relativity and cosmology.

TeX, pronounced as "tech", is a professional typesetting system created in 1977 by Donald E. Knuth, a professor at Stanford University, and the author of famous The Art of Computer Programming. TeX provides a simple text-only code describing a typesetted document with a high quality output file in DVI (DeVice Independent) format, PostScript or PDF. In addition to PlainTeX, the initially TeX macro-language by Donald E. Knuth, other TeX modifications were created: LaTeX is the most popular extension of TeX by Leslie Lamport that became a standard for professional typesetting throughout the world, and AMS-TeX created by Michael D. Spivak at the American Mathematical Society for typesetting of highly complicate mathematical papers. The Lion that above, the TeX logo, was drawn by Duanne Bibby, a well-known commercial artist who illustrated Knuth's TeX Book and Lamport's LaTeX Book.
Any TeX distribution contains PlainTeX/LaTeX/AMS-TeX processors, a DVI-viewer, PostScript fonts, utilites, and a simplest TeX editor. A comfortable TeX editor containing pictogram menu should be downloaded and installed separately. Free TeX software can be downloaded from the direct links given below. Additional TeX software can be obtained from the TeX Users Group (TUG) or the Compressive Tex Archive Network (CTAN). The principal CTAN hosts are U.S. CTAN, Cambridge CTAN (U.K.), Dante CTAN (Germany), which contain links to other CTAN mirrors throughout the world. For an express download use the FTP link to Cambridge CTAN.
To type LaTeX we recommend to install the cross-platform software that is available for both Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X: Tex Live, a cross-platform complete TeX system and TeXMaker which is a cross-plaform TeX-editor with pictogram menu. One may also like TeXstudio, the cross-platform TeX editor which is an open source derivative of TeXMaker. While Windows users may also like MiKTeX as a TeX system and TeXnicCenter as a TeX editor. Also, Windows users may like proTeXt which is an all-in-one distribution containing MiKTeX, TeXMaker and utilites in one self-installing file. Linux/BSD/Solaris users may also choose Kile, the TeXMaker predecessor working under both KDE and Gnome. Mac OS X users may also like MacTeX. All these is free software.
All books accessed on this website are free for distribution according to the GNU General Public License and the copyright agreement under which the books are distributed by their authors and publishers. These free books and also other free literature on TeX/LaTeX can be found on CTAN, in the Info Folder.
