Physics International

Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology and underlying Mathematics


This special issue aims to provide an advanced forum for studies related to astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology and underlying mathematics, and to explore these rapidly growing areas in the intersections of physical theories and new experimental and theoretical methodologies. Mathematical studies (analytic, numerical, statistical and approximation methods for modeling and solving relative problems) and observations have for many years played a crucial role in the modeling of physical cosmology and astrophysical phenomena. Moreover, new scientific data such as those acquired through astronomical observation, is increasingly a source for interesting and challenging problems in theoretical physics, in mathematics (such as geometric analysis and PDE), as well as philosophical issues in cosmology. Special needs arising from situations that intertwine theory with phenomena may not yet have sufficient physics to explain certain observations, which constitute a continuing challenge. Such interplays that lead to new concepts of Physics will be explored and developed in this contribution. The goal will be to assess the current state-of-the-art and define directions for future research. This special issue will provide the opportunity to bring together astronomers, astrophysicists, mathematicians and others with interests overlapping with those areas mentioned above.

This issue will publish reviews and research articles. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish astronomical and experimental observations, as well as theoretical physics studies and concrete problems of mathematics, with special emphasis on their connection in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided. The special issue will be supported by Physics International. Physics International is a peer reviewed international scientific journal launched to cover current research in Physics. This journal is an open access and devoted to the publication of research / review articles concerned with the description, solution, and applications of physics.

Especially welcomed are:

  1. Manuscripts regarding original research proposals and research ideas
  2. Electronic files or software containing full details of the calculations and experimental procedure; if unable to be published in a normal way they can be deposited as supplementary material
  3. Manuscripts containing summaries and surveys on research cooperation and actual and future projects (as those founded by national governments or others) are likewise appreciated, as they provide interesting information for a broad field of users.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Astronomy
  2. Astrophysics
  3. General relativity and Gravitation
  4. Astrophysical Cosmology
  5. Mathematical Physics
  6. Observational Astronomy - Radio, Infrared, Optical, X-Ray, Neutrino, etc.
  7. Planetary science
  8. Astronomy equipment and technologies
  9. Astronomical data analyses
  10. Relative mathematical methods.
