  • Prof. Socolar joins Editorial Board of Physical Review E
    Steffen A. Bass, for faculty, 2008/12/24 21:11:17

    Prof. Joshua Socolar was recently named to the Editorial Board of the American Physical Society's Physical Review E for a 3-year term starting January 1, 2009. The journal is interdisciplinary in scope, focuses on many-body phenomena, including recent developments in quantum and classical chaos and soft matter physics. It has sections on statistical physics, equilibrium and transport properties of fluids, liquid crystals, complex fluids, polymers, chaos, fluid dynamics, plasma physics, classical physics, and computational physics. In addition, the journal features sections on two rapidly growing areas: biological physics and granular materials.
