Hi,

You are cordially invited to submit interesting, well-written articles

for the "Chaos and Graphics Section" of the international scientific

journal Computers and Graphics (Elsevier). I edit this section, which

appears in each issue of the journal. Topics include the mathematical,

scientific, and artistic application of fractals, chaos, and related.

Your papers can be quite short if desired, for example, often a page or

two is sufficient to convey an idea and a pretty graphic. (The journal

is peer-reviewed, which means that several reviewers will judge whether

the paper is suitably written, attractive, relevant, or novel. The

English must be excellent.) I publish color, where appropriate.

The goal of my section is to provide visual demonstrations of

complicated and beautiful structures which can arise in systems based on

simple rules. The section presents papers on the seemingly paradoxical

combinations of randomness and structure in systems of mathematical,

physical, biological, electrical, chemical, and artistic interest.

Topics include: iteration, cellular automata, bifurcation maps,

fractals, dynamical systems, patterns of nature created from simple

rules, and aesthetic graphics drawn from the universe of mathematics and

art.

Please remove the "Z" in my e-mail address if sending me mail.

Thanks.

Regards, Cliff
