Special Topic Issue on Theory, Methods and Applications of Mesoscopic Modeling

Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is organizing a Special Topic Issue on Theory, Methods and Applications of Mesoscopic Modeling to be published in December 2017. George Karniadakis, Guohui Hu and Zhen Li are serving as Guest Editors of this special topic issue, with help from the Editor-in-Chief Xingming Guo and Editorial Director Haili Xu.
Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is a scientific journal co-published by Springer and Shanghai University. It was established in 1980 as a comprehensive journal presenting original research papers on mechanics, mathematical methods in mechanics as well as applied mathematics relevant to neoteric mechanics. AMM is published monthly.
The goal of this special issue in Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is to highlight the physical principles of mesoscopic phenomena -- particularly related to complex fluids, polymers, macromolecules, soft materials and interfacial problems, as well as the development of methods and algorithms. On the one hand, mesoscopic modeling drastically simplifies the atomistic dynamics by eliminating fast variables at atomistic level, and thus provides an economical simulation path to capture the collective dynamics of fluids on larger spatial and temporal scales beyond the capability of brute-force atomistic approaches. On the other hand, mesoscopic modeling considers the thermal fluctuations at the mesoscopic regimes as the corresponding correlations are responsible for interesting phenomena that cannot be captured by mean-field theories. In this special issue, we aim to illuminate the rapidly expanding research field of mesoscopic modeling.
Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is putting together this Special Topic Issue on Mesoscopic Modeling because we believe it will be very valuable to the growing community. We envision publishing a collection of 10 papers related to the theory, algorithms and diverse applications of coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CGMD), dissipative particle dynamics (DPD), lattice Boltzamann method (LBM), smoothed DPD (SDPD), multi-particle collision dynamics (MPCD), Monte Carlo simulation (MC), fluctuating hydrodynamics (FH) and other mesoscopic methods.
We would like to invite you to contribute an original research paper or a review paper and you are, of course, welcome to have coauthors of the paper. The deadline for contributions is July 1, 2017. The article will be refereed, but the reviewers will be informed that it is an invited article. Authors of articles in this Special Topic Issues will find the same timely peer-review and rapid publication time as usual for this Journal. Accepted articles will be published online with DOI immediately, and then fully searchable and citable.

    Aims and Scope


    Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is the English version of a journal on applied mathematics and mechanics published in the People's Republic of China. Our Editorial Committee, headed by Professor Chien Weizang, Ph.D., President of Shanghai University, consists of scientists in the fields of applied mathematics and mechanics from all over China.

    Founded by Professor Chien Weizang in 1980, Applied Mathematics and Mechanics became a bimonthly in 1981 and then a monthly in 1985. It is a comprehensive journal presenting original research papers on mechanics, mathematical methods and modeling in mechanics as well as applied mathematics relevant to neoteric mechanics.

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed. The author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing this material on behalf of any and all co-authors. Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
