Combustion Theory and Modelling
Plans are now well-advanced for the creation of a new journal on the
theoretical study of combustion, with volume 1, issue 1, appearing
in the first quarter of 1997, published by the Institute of Physics
Publishers who also publish Nonlinearity. A call for papers will
soon be made.
- Some details can be found, and will be updated
regularly, in the URL:
Combustion Theory and Modelling is a journal for the publication
and dissemination of scientific articles that apply mathematical
theory, modelling, numerical simulation and experimental techniques
to the study of combustion. Experimental studies that are published
in the journal are expected to be closely related to theoretical
issues, either by highlighting fundamental theoretical questions
or by providing a sound basis for comparison with theory.
The journal encourages fundamental theoretical investigations into
all aspects of combustion, aimed at gaining a deeper understanding
of its various phenomena and at strengthening the predictive power
of theoretical methods.
Analytical techniques, numerical methods, and modelling strategies with a
mathematical character that are used successfully in combustion science
cover a broad spectrum. These range from asymptotic and perturbation
methods for nonlinear partial differential equations, and dynamical systems
theory, through statistical and probabilistic methods used in turbulence
modelling, to modern computational approaches such as adaptive mesh
refinement and front tracking.
The new journal "Combustion Theory and Modelling" will focus on providing
the highest quality forum for articles that explain combustion phenomena
and that explore the predictions and properties of combustion models from a
modern mathematically-based viewpoint.
