Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications (SIGMA)


Special Issue on Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Lara B. Anderson (Virginia Tech, USA)
Laura P. Schaposnik (University of Illinois at Chicago, USA)


Topics for this special issue will include:

  • geometric properties of Hitchin systems;
  • geometric structures arising from Hitchin systems;
  • Hitchin systems and singular geometries;
  • Hitchin systems within string theory.

This issue is partially related to the workshops series “RTG Workshop on the Geometry and Physics of Higgs Bundles” held at UIC and the workshop series “Current Trends on Spectral Data for Higgs Bundles”, supported by NSF DMS 1107452, 1107263, 1107367 “RNMS: GEometric structures And Representation varieties“ (the GEAR Network) and NSF RTG grant DMS-1246844.

The mini-course lecturers of the workshops, as well as other workshop speakers and participants, and others whose work is concerned with the above topics, are invited to submit papers to the special issue. For this issue, both original research articles and review papers are welcome, but review authors are particularly encouraged to present clear review articles.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is August 01, 2018.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.

If you have your paper ready earlier than the deadline, we encourage you to send it now. The reviewing process starts once the paper is submitted and we will publish the paper as soon as the positive publication decision is made. The paper will be indexed in the relevant databases as soon as it is published without waiting for completion of the special issue.
