Special issue: European Journal of Applied Mathematics (EJAM)
The Theory & Applications of Piecewise Smooth Dynamics
A forthcoming special issue of the European Journal of Applied Mathematics will feature re- search articles discussing the theory and applications of dynamical systems with piecewise smooth differential equations. Contributions are welcomed describing theoretical and analytical tools, for example analysis of discontinuity-induced singularities and bifurcations, and numerical methods for solving and optimizing piecewise smooth systems. Applications of interest include, but are not limited to, mathematical models of the climate, the regulation in the human sleep-wake cycles or gene networks, predator-prey systems or mitosis, mechanical contact and electronic switching. The peer review of submissions for this special issue will be in accordance with EJAM’s mission to focus on mathematical models inspired by real-world applications, while at the same time fostering the development of theoretical methods with a broad range of applicability.
The guest editors for this special issue will be Mike Jeffrey (Bristol), and Petri Piiroinen (NUI Galway), with assistance from Michael Ward (UBC; EJAM co-editor-in-chief).
Papers are due no later than 31st August 2017. Authors should lodge submissions via the online website for EJAM, noting in a covering letter that their paper is for consideration for this special issue. Publication of the special issue is expected to be in late 2018.
Enquires can be directed to either Mike Jeffrey (firstname.lastname@example.org), Petri Piiroinen (email@example.com), or Michael Ward (firstname.lastname@example.org).
