I am preparing to send my article to a Springer journal for the first time. I want to insert a two column Table as shown in the following image:

while my code produces:

My code:

    What is the question? – user31729 Apr 16 '17 at 10:15
  • @ christian Hupf, if you run the code you will see that my table is not like in the image, How can I fix this problem. – user137684 Apr 16 '17 at 13:36

Not sure which features you want to change:

  • If you want the middle column to be broader, use X and it will fill all the available space.
  • If you want to align the numbers in the right columns, use for example siunitx.
  • For the spacing around the top line, booktabs might help.
  • @{} removes the protruding lines
