The 100th birthday of Professor Yoichiro Nambu, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2008, was on 18th January 2021. Professor Nambu was one of the most influential theoretical physicists of the twentieth century. His deep and unexpected insights often took years for others to understand and fully appreciate. They include spontaneous symmetry breaking, for which he was awarded half of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics; Nambu Mechanics; the theory of quarks and gluons, and string theory.
We would like to commemorate this landmark birthday with a special issue of EPJST entitled Symmetry, Dynamics and Strings: A Centennial Issue in Honor of Yoichiro Nambu. We invite contributions to this issue of articles that are inspired by his seminal and panoramic work. Besides particle physics, contributions from other disciplines in which he worked such as spontaneous symmetry breaking are encouraged. Short reviews may also be submitted.
Authors should submit their original articles or short reviews to the Editorial Office of EPJ ST via the submission system clearly mentioning the title of the special issue. Manuscripts should be prepared following the instructions for authors using the latex template of EPJ ST, which can be downloaded here.
Open Access: EPJST is a hybrid journal offering Open Access publication via the Open Choice programme and a growing number of Springer Compact “Publish and Read” arrangements which enable authors to publish OA at no direct cost (all costs are paid centrally).
