        Thematic Issue on "Computer Algebra in Physics Research"

Computer Physics Communications is a long established Computational
Physics Journal which has recently issued its 100th volume. It is a
leading journal for the publication of numerical methods and of
computer programs for physics, and covers a wide range of applications
in computational physics and physical chemistry (see
http://www.cpc.cs.qub.ac.uk}).

Occasionally, the journal publishes "Thematic Issues", where papers on a
specific area of topical interest are drawn together in a single
volume. With the development of versatile symbolic computation
environments, there has been a growth in the development and
application of computer algebra to problems in physics. Thus we believe
that the time is ripe for a journal issue dedicated to such methods. We
intend that this issue will illustrate the state of the art in this
important and growing area.

We are inviting you, one of the experts in the field, to submit a paper
for this issue. We expect to have contributions covering different
application areas and addressing different aspects of algorithm and
code design. All contributions will be refereed to ensure that the
standards of the journal are maintained.

We hope that you will be able to make a contribution to this Issue. In
order to help our planning, we should be grateful if you let us know as
soon as possible whether or not you plan to contribute. For your
convenience, we have attached below a reply form for you to mail, email
or Fax your response to us.

We look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely,

          THEMATIC ISSUE ON "COMPUTER ALGEBRA IN PHYSICS RESEARCH"

Physicists have for more than forty years used computers in their
research, principally for numerical calculations. Computer algebra
systems developed over the past twenty five years have now reached a
level of maturity to allow the computer to also impact physics research
through computer manipulation of symbols according to mathematical
rules. The extent of the application of computer algebra to problems in
physics is now such that we believe that the time is ripe for a journal
issue dedicated to such methods.

We are thus inviting submissions for a special issue of Computer Physics
Communications entitled "Computer Algebra in Physics Research". This
issue will be a collection of papers reporting either original results
obtained using the libraries presently available in computer algebra
systems, or describing the development of relevant new libraries or
algorithms themselves.

Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to:

    * the use of computer algebra packages for tackling significant
      problems involving rather complicated or large volume symbolic
      calculations;

    * new non-trivial computer-algebra programs implementing
mathematical
      methods widely used in research;

    * the design of algorithms for the solution of relevant problems in
      Physics, and/or their computer implementation.

Generally speaking, the items above must be considered in the framework
of applications of computer algebra in theoretical research and/or its
use as an aid in preparing the computer input or computer code for
numerical problems. Possible subareas include differential equations,
symbolic and numeric perturbative calculations in field theories, field
simulations, general relativity, plasma physics, etc. All contributions
will be refereed to ensure that the standards of the journal are
maintained.

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts to one of the two
guest-editors who will handle the preparation of this special issue.
Typical papers should be fifteen to twenty five pages in length. Early
submissions are encouraged.


      Deadline for submission of papers:        February 28, 1998
      Notification of acceptance/rejection:     May 30, 1998
      Final revised manuscripts due:            July 31, 1998
      Appearance of special issue:              1998


Manuscripts may be submitted electronically in TeX, LaTeX, AMSTeX, or
uuencoded-gzipped PS, but LaTeX using the Elsevier style files is
preferred as this aids automatic typesetting of the manuscript - see
http://www.cpc.cs.qub.ac.uk/mssubmission.html.
