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

Special Issue on Integrability in Mechanics and Geometry: Theory and Computations in honour of Mark Levi

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Annalisa Calini (College of Charleston, USA)
Boris Khesin (University of Toronto, Canada)
Gloria Mari-Beffa (University of Wisconsin, USA)
Sergei Tabachnikov (Pennsylvania State University, USA)
Vadim Zharnitsky (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)

Topics for this special issue will include study of invariants and complete integrability of geometrically motivated differential equations (in particular, vehicle motion, tire track geometry, and smoke ring equations), sub-Riemannian geometry, geometric control, nonholonomic systems (such as e.g. bicycle stability and nonholonomic methods in billiard problems), computational methods in mechanics and dynamics (including geometric integrators, biological applications, etc.).

The special issue is related to the workshop Integrability in Mechanics and Geometry: Theory and Computations, held at Providence, USA in June 1–5, 2015. The issue is also devoted to Mark Levi's 64th birthday (63.3775 years is two billion seconds!).

Papers from the participants and from other authors whose work fits into the topics of the workshop 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 February 29, 2016.

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.
