New Editor-in-Chief appointed for Nonlinearity

31 Jan 2013Bristol, UK

Professor Edgar Knobloch has been appointed as the new co-Editor-in-Chief of Nonlinearity, a journal jointly owned by the Institute of Physics and the London Mathematical Society and published by IOP Publishing.

With a wealth of experience in the nonlinear community, Professor Knobloch currently holds the position of Professor of Physics at the University of California, Berkeley and is a visiting professor at Loughborough University. His previous appointments include a Chair in Applied Mathematics at Leeds University, and research positions at Harvard University and the University of Cambridge. His research interests centre on nonlinear dynamics of dissipative systems.

Professor Knobloch takes on the role of co-Editor-in-Chief in January 2013 from Professor Jon Keating, University of Bristol. Professor Keating leaves the position after 8 years, having ensured that Nonlinearity is a place where researchers can both read and publish the most stimulating work in nonlinear science.

Professor Knobloch said of his appointment: “I am delighted to be returning to Nonlinearity in my new capacity as co-Editor-in-Chief. Nonlinearity is a prominent journal in nonlinear science, and I look forward to working to strengthen the journal even further, particularly on the applied side of the subject.”

Chris Wileman, Publisher of Nonlinearity said: “Edgar comes to the position with a wealth of experience, including a spell as a valued member of the Editorial Board of Nonlinearity, and wide respect from across the nonlinear science community. We very much look forward to working with Edgar to continue to develop the journal’s high standards of quality and interest to the readership.”

Professor Knobloch joins current co-Editor-in-Chief, Professor Anatoly Neishtadt, Loughborough University.
