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

Special Issue on Progress in Twistor Theory

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Michael Eastwood (Australian National University, Australia)
Claude LeBrun (Stony Brook University, USA)
Lionel Mason (University of Oxford, England)

Topics for this special issue will include:

  • twistor spaces and self-dual geometry;
  • twistor theory and Einstein metrics;
  • the Penrose transform and integral geometry;
  • the Ward transform and integrable systems;
  • twistors and amplitudes.

Submissions to this special issue are by invitation only.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

Both original research articles and review papers will be considered (not having been published nor submitted elsewhere).

Although we expect the default article to be in the range 10–20 pages, in fact there is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for submission is October 31, 2013.

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