Today marks Maryam Mirzakhani's birthday and our 4th year celebrating International Women in Mathematics Day. The goal of the day is to inspire women everywhere to celebrate their achievements in mathematics, and to encourage an open, welcoming and inclusive work environment for everybody. In 2014, Maryam Mirzakhani was awarded the Fields Medal for "her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces." Today, we honor her and all of the remarkable women in mathematics.
Dennis Parnell Sullivan of Stony Brook University, USA, and the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York, USA has been awarded the 2022 Abel Prize “for his groundbreaking contributions to topology in its broadest sense, and in particular its algebraic, geometric and dynamical aspects.” Congratulations to you, Professor Sullivan, on achieving such a significant milestone! Learn more about Professor Sullivan's research in his biography and by reading his Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems article, "The circle and the solenoid."
Professor Corinna Ulcigrai, University of Zurich, has been invited to speak at the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 (ICM 2022) on Monday, July 11. She will be a speaker in Section 9. Dynamics of the virtual event. Professor Ulcigrai's fields of interest are ergodic theory, dynamical systems and Teichmueller dynamics. We are especially proud to share this news, as Professor Ulcigrai is an Editor for our Journal of Modern Dynamics. Visit the ICM 2022 Program & Sections page to learn more about this prestigious event.
In celebration of Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month, AIMS is offering hybrid journal authors that opt for Open Choice a 50% discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) until April 30, 2022. The goal of #MathStatMonth is to increase the understanding and appreciation of mathematics and statistics - promoting the sustainable transition to Open Access publishing is our way of supporting this goal. Hybrid journal authors may opt for Open Choice at any stage of publication by emailing AIMS Production Editor, Charley Denton, and the discount will automatically be applied to their invoice. Although payment does not necessarily need to be made by the end of April, Charley must be informed by then if an author is opting for Open Choice to receive the discount. Learn more about Open Choice and our Open Access options here.
AIMS will be offering a 30% discount on our top-selling books at various points throughout the next year. Our free e-books will be featured as well. Sign up for email alerts and follow us on social media for discount codes, brief summaries, and information on how these impactful books might be applicable to your research. You can sign up for email alerts on any of our journal homepages and follow us on Twitter , Facebook and LinkedIn .
The Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) has decided to hold the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) 2022 as a virtual event. This event will follow the original time schedule from Saint Petersburg and attendance will be free of charge. This decision has been made in response to recent developments in Russia and Ukraine. AIMS sends their sympathies to the Ukrainian people during this difficult time.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 13th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications is further rescheduled to take place in the summer of 2023. Stay tuned for the location and precise dates.
Due to serious concerns regarding the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the organizing partners of the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) have decided to postpone the 2022 JMM, originally scheduled to be held in Seattle, January 5-8. A virtual meeting will be scheduled later in 2022. AIMS does not currently plan to attend the virtual meeting, but we will let you know if that changes. You may check the JMM website to stay informed on any updates for the 2022 virtual meeting.
AIMS has published a total of 37 articles from 12 Fields Medalists over the years. This includes work from Artur Avila, Jean Bourgain, Charles Fefferman, Alessio Figalli, Elon Lindenstrauss, P.-L. Lions, Gregory Margulis, Maryam Mirzkhani, Terence Tao, Cédric Villani, Shing-Tung Yau and Jean-Christophe Yoccoz. Some of these Fields Medalists have held management positions on our editorial boards and received other prestigous IMU awards. In celebration of their accomplishments, you can enjoy complimentary access to their work
We have updated our Open Access policy to include Read and Publish agreements according to the RCUK Policy and Plan S. When an institution makes a Read & Publish agreement with AIMS, authors affiliated with this institution can freely publish in any of our 19 hybrid journals. It also gives the institution perpetual rights to content from our entire journal portfolio and supports the sustainable transition to open access publishing. Please review our policy to learn more about the steps to publishing Open Access under the Read and Publish model.
We are very pleased to announce that the Impact Factors for all applicable AIMS journals have increased in the 2021 Journal Citation Reports. We send our sincere thanks and appreciation to the readers, authors, reviewers, editors and staff for their hard work. AIMS is looking forward to more success this coming year.
The June/July 2021 issue of Notices of the American Mathematical Society included a memorial tribute, Remembering Jean Bourgain . We would like to join the AMS in recognizing the contributions Dr. Bourgain made to central topics of mathematical analysis. He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1994 for his work on the geometry of Banach spaces, convexity in high dimensions, harmonic analysis, ergodic theory, and finally, nonlinear partial differential equations from mathematical physics. AIMS is honored that he chose to serve as an editor of Discrete & Continuous Dynamical Systems . We welcome you to browse the article Dr. Bourgain published in DCDS or the memorial tribute in Notices of the AMS to learn more about his remarkable achievements.
Today marks Maryam Mirzakhani's birthday and our 3rd year celebrating International Women in Mathematics Day. In 2014, Dr. Mirzakhani was both the first woman and the first Iranian to win the Fields Medal for "her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces". She was a professor at Stanford University until she unfortunately passed away from breast cancer in 2017. Watch Secrets of the Surface: The Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani to learn more about her brilliant work.
Happy Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month! We are making our special issue DCDS-B 26-4 free to access during the month of April.
