CSF neither dead nor exactly alive

El Naschie may actually be enjoying this.


A reader remarks:

It would appear that C,S&F ( http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/09600779 ) has only 2 papers ready for its January 2011 issue!

I would hope this is because no one wants to submit their work to be drowned in this cesspool.

It is curious whether C,S&F will follow the fate of the Elsevier Journal on Algorithms. The editorial board of the latter quit in 2003 over a dispute with Elsevier about its price gouging (see http://www.cs.colorado.edu/~hal/s.pdf ). The journal limped from 2003 to 2010 publishing about a dozen papers a year (down from 4 to 5 times that prior to 2003). Elsevier shut it down in 2010 ( http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/01966774 ).

We can only hope this ugly chapter in nonlinear science is closed promptly by the shuttering of C,S&F.

We'll be watching with morbid interest.

  1. It is interesting that El-Nabulsi Ahmad Rami has published 7 papers on CS&F in 2009.

    1-On the fractional minimal length Heisenberg–Weyl uncertainty relation from fractional Riccati generalized momentum operator

    2- Complexified quantum field theory and “mass without mass” from multidimensional fractional actionlike variational approach with dynamical fractional exponents

    3- Fractional illusion theory of space: Fractional gravitational field with fractional extra-dimensions

    4-Fractional Dirac operators and deformed field theory on Clifford algebra

    5- Fractional dynamics, fractional weak bosons masses and physics beyond the standard model

    6- Fractional Nottale’s Scale Relativity and emergence of complexified gravity

    7-Fractional action-like variational problems in holonomic, non-holonomic and semi-holonomic constrained and dissipative dynamical systems

    I think maybe he was citing El naschie.

  2. Great observation, Zahy. I have blogged it.
