IUTAM Symposium on 50 Years of Chaos in Kyoto

IUTAM Symposium on 50 Years of Chaos in Kyoto

On November 27, 1961, Yoshisuke Ueda, then a graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Kyoto University, accidentally observed a "randomly transitional phenomenon", now commonly known as "chaos". Fifty years later and approximately 150 meters from the site of Ueda's discovery, the IUTAM Symposium on 50 Years of Chaos: Applied and Theoretical ws held. Jeff Moehlis reports.

Reaction to our April Editorial on scientific publishing.

Reaction to our April Editorial on scientific publishing.

In his April editorial, Jens Rademacher discussed some of the perils of open source publishing. One of the web sites he cited, Scholarly Open Access, features Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP) as "predatory open-access publisher". Chris Cannings is Emeritus Professor of mathematics at the University of Sheffield and Editor-in-Chief of SCIRP's Applied Mathematics. DSWeb Magazine asked him for a reaction, which is summarized here.

Tradition wants it that we spend several years abroad as postdocs after finishing our PhD, and look for more permanent positions across the globe. This often leads to issues collectively known as "n-body problems" - where n>1. Your Portal-Editor-in-Chief ups the ante by becoming father while moving down under.

Recent publications in SIADS

Editor-in-Chief: Björn Sandstede
Electronic only, continuous publication

The SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems (SIADS) publishes research articles on the mathematical analysis and modeling of dynamical systems and its application to the physical, engineering, life, and social sciences. SIADS is published in electronic format only. Submitted articles should contribute either to the theory of dynamical systems, to the understanding of dynamical systems phenomena through experiment or numerical simulation, or to the use of dynamical systems methods in applications.
