UK Nonlinear News, May 2002.
American Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is gladly to announce that a gift subscription of the international journal Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems (with two series, one on analysis and the other on modelling and computations) can be offered to libraries where sufficient faculty members are interested in the journal and yet, the libraries do not order the journal currently. DCDS covers the areas of analysis, differential equations and dynamics. As an SCI journal, DCDS enjoys a high impact factor. Contributors to the journal include many of the prominent mathematicians and scientists. Detailed information including recent publications can be found at http://AIMsciences.org. Individual researchers and librarians interested in this offer should contact Dr. Shouchuan Hu at shh209f+AEA-smsu.edu.

The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society (Series A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences) is the world's longest running scientific journal. Founded in 1665 it was used by Newton to launch his scientific career. It is published monthly by the Royal Society, the UK academy of science. All issues of the journal since 1665 are archived electronically by JSTOR in USA, accessible through most University Libraries.
The 3 Millennium Issues of Phil Trans A, devoted to the work of young scientists, proved to be highly successful. Popular versions have now been published by Cambridge University Press as 3 paper-backed books, all carrying the generic title Visions of the Future (ed. J. M. T. Thompson, 2001). They are devoted to Astronomy & Earth Science, Physics & Electronics, and Chemistry & Life Science. The collections give a unique snap-shot of the state of physical science at the turn of the millennium, of interest to researchers and the public at large. The excitement and enthusiasm of the young scientists is strongly conveyed.
To build on this success, the Editor, Michael Thompson, is now planning a rolling series of triennial Christmas Issues. Following the Millennium pattern, he plans to solicit articles from leading young scientists, including holders of Royal Society Research Fellowships. For compatibility with these awards, young will be interpreted as scientists with no more than ten years post doctoral experience. A three year cycle will ensure that the majority of fellows receive a relevant invitation: and this new series will act as a valuable forum for them. It is expected that Cambridge University Press will be adapting these issues as a series of books, as was the case with the Millennium Issues.
Young researchers, world-wide, are hereby invited to submit articles reviewing their field of work and looking forward to new developments. They are encouraged to be more speculative, and perhaps more provocative, than they would normally be in a review article. The articles should be timely and topical, and written for a general scientific audience, at about the level of Scientific American. They should be well illustrated with diagrams, photographs, etc, and detailed mathematics should be kept to a minimum. A paper that describes some recent cutting edge research, as well as putting it in its wider context, and looking forward to the future is an ideal candidate. The papers will be subjected to a refereeing process which takes account of the above criteria.
In selecting 46 articles for the Millennium Issues, it was apparent that 3 issues of the journal are needed to adequately cover the physical sciences. So for this new series the editor is adopting the pattern of publishing one issue each Christmas, rolling cyclically through the physical sciences as follows:
|2002 and 2005 to cover||Astronomy & Earth Science 2003|
|2006 to cover||Mathematics, Physics & Engineering|
|2004 and 2007 to cover||Chemistry & Life Science|
In view of the interdisciplinary nature of much research, this classification will be applied in a flexible manner, and researchers in the biological sciences should not necessarily by deterred. Suggestions for contributions are now welcomed, according to the following timetable.
|15 Oct||year before publication||Receipt of abstracts by Editor|
|30 Oct||year before publication||Acceptance decisions to authors|
|1 Feb||year of publication||Receipt of papers by the Editor|
|Feb-May||year of publication||Refereeing process|
|15 Jun||year of publication||Receipt of final, refereed papers|
Any young scientist, world-wide, who would be interested in contributing an article should send an abstract to the Editor for consideration: submissions by e-mail are strongly encouraged. The abstract should be about one page in length, and a brief CV should also be attached.

Announcing the first journal to provide a comprehensive forum for multiscale research.
Centered around multiscale phenomena, Multiscale Modelling and Simulation (MMS) is an interdisciplinary journal focusing on the fundamental modelling and computational principles underlying various multiscale methods. Featuring a distinguished, international editorial board, MMS publishes new ideas and methodologies that can be used in various application fields. Particularly emphasised is the interplay between analysis and modelling, modelling and simulation, and mathematics and various applications.
By its nature, multiscale modelling is highly interdisciplinary, with developments occurring independently across fields. A broad range of scientific and engineering problems involve multiple scales. Traditional monoscale approaches have proven to be inadequate, even with the largest supercomputers, because of the range of scales and the prohibitively large number of variables involved. Thus, there is a growing need to develop systematic modelling and simulation approaches for multiscale problems. MMS will provide a single broad, authoritative source for results in this area.
MMS bridges the growing gap in communication between mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering, computer science, environmental science, and more.
As part of the family of high-quality, distinguished SIAM journals, MMS will benefit from global distribution, accelerated electronic publication, and low subscription prices.
Submit now to the only journal to welcome papers from all disciplines that use multiscale methods
MMS accepts submissions via anonymous ftp. Complete electronic submission instructions, instructions for authors, and a detailed editorial policy are available at http://www.siam.org/journals/mms/mms.htm. Please review the instructions before submitting your paper.
