1 Background

There is to be a special issue of the journal Physica D on Coagulation-fragmentation processes. This call for submissions is open to all in the subject area, it is not restricted to those involved in the recent workshop run by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh.

Submitted papers should fulfill the usual criteria for Physica D, that is, they should either detail original research, and/or be a review article, in each case reporting experiments, techniques and ideas which advance the understanding of nonlinear phenomena in general. It would be good to have a few review articles of the main aspects of coagulation-fragmentation problems, please notify one of the organisers in advance if you intend to write such a paper so that we don't receive duplicates. The special issue will also contain a tutorial paper introducing the topic to people outside the subject area.

Submissions may be from researchers in any discipline who work on coagulation-fragmentation (CF) equations and related processes. It will be of particular interest to:

A key feature of the special issue will be the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners involved with CF equations. This should promote a greater awareness of existing results and outstanding problems in this area and provide mathematicians with new mathematical challenges and experimental scientists, engineers and industrialists with new analytical, modelling, and numerical techniques.

2 Submission details

Papers should be submitted to one of the organisers (details below) by 15th October, 2005. preferably as a pdf file prepared using LaTeX (the Elsevier style file is available here and full information on using LaTeX for article-preparation is here), alternatively a pdf file prepared using another package or a Word document is acceptable. As far as possible we aim to complete the refereeing process electronically. Articles will be judged to the usual standards of Physica D.

All manuscripts should be written in good English. The paper copies of the text should be prepared with double line spacing and wide margins, on numbered sheets.

We hope to complete the refereeing by the end of 2005, and then early in 2006 to receive revised manuscripts.
