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


Special Issue on Modular Forms and String Theory in honor of Noriko Yui

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Charles Doran (University of Alberta, Canada)
Yasuhiro Goto (Hokkaido University of Education at Hakodate, Japan)
Ling Long (Louisiana State University, USA)


The issue is related to the Workshop “Modular Forms in String Theory” in honor of Noriko Yui, September 25–30, 2016, Banff, Canada.

The main topic of the issue is the interface of number theory and string theory, in particular, various modular forms, zeta-functions, $L$-series, Galois representations, arising from Calabi–Yau manifolds, conformal field theory, quantum field theory, $4D$ gauge theory, and Feynman diagrams and integrals.

Papers from the participants and from other authors whose work fits into the topics are welcome for this issue.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

Both original research articles and review papers will be considered (not published or considered for publication elsewhere).

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is September 30, 2017.

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.
