CALL FOR PAPERS
Fractal Spacetime and Noncommutative Geometry in Quantum and High Energy Physics (An International Journal)
It is a true pleasure to announce the launch of a brand new journal devoted entirely to path breaking ideas in physics generally and quantum mechanics in particular. This international journal will serve the field spanned by the interplay between number theory, the queen of mathematics, as well as geometry and the physical quantum. It simply cannot pass unnoticed that the fundamental results of the relatively new science of quantum chaos has established a firm relation between the theory of prime numbers on the mathematical side and the theory of spacetime on the physical, geometrical and philosophical side. We have just begun to understand the ramifications and importance of these results for understanding quantum physics and this is one of the various raison d'être for this new journal. Similarly the deep connections between the theory of quantum gravity and the Riemann hypothesis will be one of the important directions which our journal will encourage. At present there seems to be two main physical theories which make extensive use of the afore mentioned interplay between geometry, number theory and quantum mechanics. These two theories are von Neumann-Connes theory of noncommutative geometry and the fractal-Cantorian spacetime theory initiated by G. Ord, L. Nottale and the writer. On deep reflection these two theories reveal themselves as interwoven with a plethora of new mathematical and physical ideas particularly transfinite set theory and the transfinite theory of dimensions as well as K-theory and A. Grothendick theory of motives. Needless to say, super string theory is also one of the main contributors to new ideas in the field although nonlinear dynamics, fractals and number theory does not play such a profound and central role in string theory, twister theory and loop quantum gravity as in noncommutative geometry, E-infinity theory and E-infinity rings and algebra. In particular we will encourage the influx of ideas from the vibrant and modern field of nonlinear dynamics, chaos, fractals, wild topology and knot theory which invaded many of the well established fields in science and engineering and papers of an interdisciplinary character linking these fields from a practical pragmatic or theoretical purist view point will be welcomed.
This journal has a clear mission which is freeing the cutting edge fundamental research in quantum physics from any prejudice and restrictions while guaranteeing seriousness and true integrity of the research papers far away from any funding or science political considerations. The affiliation, publication record and reputation of an author are of no great consequence for the acceptance or rejection of an article. The only criteria of relevance for the decision of acceptance or rejection of a paper will be the scientific content of the paper, its originality and possible positive impact on the field as well as the lucidity of presentation. The idea and the efforts leading to the launch of this journal come from a highly respected colleague, Prof. Ji-Huan He in science and engineering. On the insistence of Prof. He I accepted to act as an Editor in Chief for an initial period. I am of course honored but I feel it is more related to my age and semi-retired status and I accept as the law of nature that elderly scientists have a little bit more time to run a journal than a young, active person like Prof. He who has far more daunting duties with teaching, supervising and administrative university tasks. Our competent publisher, Asian Academic Publisher Limited, is a reflection of the new era in which we are living where the center for economic growth and excellence in science and engineering is shifting from the traditional old centers to Asia. I am sure that with your support this journal will be a phenomenal success.
M.S. El Naschie
I can't find this announcement on the Internet but it looks like El Naschie's handiwork. We have written to Asian Academic Publisher before, but their website is not responding. I will update this post when I find the source of the announcement.
UPDATE. The announcement was sent out with this heading:

Subject: new journal
That's El Naschie's email address. I am studying the recipient list, because it's very interesting to know who El Naschie thinks would be interested in such a journal.
