UK Nonlinear News, February 2000.
In Siam News 32(8), October 1999, pages 6-7, John Guckenheimer discusses some of his experiences, expresses some opinions, and speculates on research trends. His article is based around five examples from his research career.
John Guckenheimer has written a similar article called Computer Simulation and Beyond --- for the 21st Century for the American Mathematical Society.
Krystyna Kuperberg discusses the analysis of dynamical flows based on recent techniques of inserting plugs and twisted plugs in them. This article is based on her AWM Emmy Noether Lecture given at the Joint Meetings in San Antonio in January 1999.
Notices of the American Mathematical Society, Volume 46, Number 9, October 1999, pages 1035-1040.
To mark the new Millennium, the Editor will produce three special volumes in which leading young scientists have been invited to review their field of work and to speculate about new developments that might emerge in the next Millennium. All articles are timely, topical, and will provide an unrivalled overview of current issues in the physical sciences.
One volume will be published in December 1999 and two in January 2000.
These special volumes will be illustrated with diagrams and photographs and will celebrate the journal's longevity whilst providing a unique snapshot of the future.
A theme issue entitled Combustion science at the end of the millennium has also been published separately.

This new journal described in issue 18 of UK Nonlinear News was launched January 2000 by Dr Ji-Huan HE of Shanghai University. Scope, editorial board, subscription information and instructions for authors are available on http://www.cs.uky.edu/~jzhang/nsns.html.
The International Journal of Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation seeks a native English speaking copy editor for piece work. Contact Dr. He via glliu@yc.shu.edu.cn.

Dean Le Baron, Trustee of the Santa Fe Institute, has provided funds to produce an electronic weekly newsletter, the Complexity Digest (ComDig) for free. ComDig informs about current development in areas related to complexity. Short summaries of recent publications for distribution in the newsletter are encouraged.
ComDig is archived on the web at http://www.comdig.org (still under development) with a mirror at http://www.comdig.de.
