This issue of EPJ Special Topics honors the scientific legacy of Roger Maynard. Submissions are open for manuscripts with subjects in the categories below, and will be handled by the guest editors and the EPJ editorial desk. The articles may contain new research or may review/sketch the state of the art in a certain field of research. All submissions will be subject to single blind peer review.

  • Submission deadline August 31 , 2016. Submit to EPJ Special Topics mentioning “EPJ Special Issue Roger Maynard”
  • Accepted papers will be published early 2017. (page limit 10 pages)
  • Publication will take place in the Open Access Gold model, subject to a APC (Author Processing Charge) of 1080 € + VAT. The article will be published in full Open Access under the CC-BY license. Authors from several countries benefit from free or discounted Open Access

Tentative categories :

1. Waves in complex media (liquid crystals, magneto-optics, nonlinear media, chaotic media, optics with cold atoms…)

2. Mesoscopic physics with classical waves (correlations, coherent backscattering, speckles, full statistics, analogies with mesoscopic electon transport….)

3. Ill condensed matter (superfluidity, spin glasses, superconductivity and percolation, (non-equilibrium) statistical physics.

4. Waves in natural media (underwater acoustics, seismology, optics of foams, granular media )

5. Applications of wave propagation (D-A-WS, imaging, communication, time-reversal and wave-front shaping, photovoltaics…)

6. Quantum aspects in multiple scattering : entanglement, bunching, quantum scatterers,...
