Special Issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation:

Work Inspired by Karin Gatermann (1961--2005)

"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 All submissions will be formally acknowledged.
