Special Issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation:

Work Inspired by Karin Gatermann (1961--2005)


Title:
"Computer Algebra in Chemistry, Biology and Other Branches of Science"

Professor Karin Gatermann made a substantial impact in several areas of computational mathematics and applications, especially toric geometry, symmetry, bifurcation, numerical quadrature, and chemical mass-action kinetics. As well as her papers, she made significant software contributions.

We invite researchers, especially those inspired directly by Professor Gatermann's work, to submit high-quality research papers for a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation, to be published in her honour.

It is planned that this special issue will contain a survey and annotated bibliography of her work.

Submission Guidelines:

Papers must be submitted by e-mail or regular mail to one of the Guest Editors and should be no more than 18 pages using the JSC LaTeX stylefile that can be downloaded from http://www4.ncsu.edu/~hong/jsc.html All submissions will be formally acknowledged.

All submitted papers will be subject to refereeing according to the usual high-quality JSC refereeing standards.
