This special issue is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Roger Penrose, and will contain articles on twistor theory, geometry and mathematical physics..

This issue is related to the conference in honor of Roger Penrose's 90th birthday to be held at the University of Oxford, July 22–23, 2021.

The submission should be done by invitation.

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is January 31, 2022.
