Multiscale modelling and simulation

We now have complete access to Multiscale modelling and simulation.

About this journal:

Centered around multiscale phenomena, Multiscale Modeling and Simulation (MMS) is an interdisciplinary journal focusing on the fundamental modeling and computational principles underlying various multiscale methods. By its nature, multiscale modeling is highly interdisciplinary, with developments occurring independently across fields. A broad range of scientific and engineering problems involve multiple scales. Traditional monoscale approaches have proven to be inadequate, even with the largest supercomputers, because of the range of scales and the prohibitively large number of variables involved. Thus, there is a growing need to develop systematic modeling and simulation approaches for multiscale problems. MMS will provide a single broad, authoritative source for results in this area. MMS bridges the growing gap in communication between mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering, computer science, environmental science, and more.


Annals of Applied Statistics

After losing access for a while, we are pleased to announce that we now have access to all content within this journal title via JSTOR and Project Euclid.

About this journal:

Statistical research spans an enormous range from direct subject-matter collaborations to pure mathematical theory. The Annals of Applied Statistics, the newest journal from the IMS, is aimed at papers in the applied half of this range. Published quarterly in both print and electronic form, our goal is to provide a timely and unified forum for all areas of applied statistics.

Photovoltaics International

We now have access to Photovoltaics International Journal. This can be accessed via the journal home page.

About this journal:

Focusing on technology, the Photovoltaics International journal is specifically designed for the PV supply chain, including materials, components, equipment, manufacturing and large-scale utility installation. This in-print business-to-business publication influences the purchasing decisions of PV manufacturers, energy utilities and integrators by associating solution providers with high quality and independent technical papers.

Advanced Materials Interfaces – trial access

We have opted in to what is currently ‘free’ access to this journal published by Wiley Online. This is effectively a trial and if/when the journal begins charging a subscription fee then we will need to consider it as a new subscription.

You can access it via Library Search or via the journal’s home page.

“Interfaces play an essential role in virtually all materials and devices. While materials are shrinking, the interface begins to dominate their interesting properties. In a wide variety of applications from corrosion protection to catalysis, progress is guided by a refinement of our understanding of the interface effects. These interfaces may be solid/solid, solid/liquid, solid/gas interfaces or any combination thereof.

With the decrease in size and increase in complexity of materials this already highly interdisciplinary field is now becoming ever more integrated. Physics, chemistry, materials science and life sciences blend to encourage new, cross-pollinating ideas, which will drive forward our understanding of the physics and chemistry at the interface.

Advanced Materials Interfaces provides a forum on topics of surface and interface science with a wide choice of formats: Full Papers, Reviews and Communications, as well as Progress Reports and Research News”


Stock movement within the Central Library over the next few months

This summer sees a reconfiguration of parts of the Central Library (including some building work) which will mean some areas of the print collections will be inaccessible at certain times.

Physics books (classification numbers 53 and 530 – 532) currently located on Level 2 will be moved up to Level 4 sometime in June. They will be temporarily unavailable during the move.

Mathematics books (classification 51 and 510 – 519) and Astronomy / Astrophysics books (52 and 520) will be moved into the basement for the summer (accessible via the Store Service) and then be re-housed on the newly refurbished Level 3 (formerly the SML) in time for the beginning of the Autumn term in October 2014– they will be unavailable for a short time while moves are taking place

Print journals held on Level 4 will be moved to the newly refurbished Level 3 by the beginning of the academic year and will also be temporarily unavailable while they are moved. If you do need material that is inaccessible at any time you can request it via Document Delivery.

We will keep you fully informed as to exact dates when we have them.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics

Just as a reminder in all the new e-journal announcements, we began subscribing to the SIAM journal on Financial Mathematics at the beginning of 2014, and have full access.

The SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics addresses theoretical developments in financial mathematics as well as breakthroughs in the computational challenges they encompass.
