EPJ B extends its existing publishing activities

The publishing consortium of The European Physical Journal (EPJ) and the Editors-in-Chief are pleased to announce that The European Physical Journal B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems has substantially extended its existing publishing activities in the fields of Statistical Physics and Nonlinear Dynamics to encompass all aspects of the emerging field of Complex Systems. With the appointment of Prof. Frank Schweitzer (Z&rich) as section editor for the newly created section Complex Systems within the Editorial Board of EPJ B, the aims and scopes of EPJ B have recently been enlarged to include:

Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Methods
Fluctuation phenomena and stochastic processes
Phase transitions and critical phenomena
Discrete dynamics, chaos and adaptive control
Time series analysis
Non-equilibrium dynamics, pattern formation
Physics of networks

Interdisciplinary Physics
Information theory, combinatorial optimization
Multi-agent systems, selforganization and emergence
Multicellular phenomena, systems biology
Ecological and population dynamics
Environmental systems, hazards and risks
Traffic, infrastructures and urban dynamics
Dynamics of groups and organizations
Economic models, evolutionary game theory
Financial markets, econophysics
Information, social and economic networks
