Symmetry, an international and interdisciplinary scientific journal,
publishes reviews, regular research papers and short notes. Our aim is
to encourage scientists to publish as much as possible their
theoretical and experimental details. There is no restriction on the
length of the papers. If there are computation and the experiment, the
details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.
There are in addition three unique features:
* Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be
* Comments on any related papers published in this journal and other
journals can be made public immediately in the mailing list and
published as short letters in this journal.
* Electronic files regarding the full details of the calculation and
experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way,
will be deposited as supplementary material.
* Physics: conservation laws, Noether's theorem, spatial parity,
charge parity, time parity, G-parity, standard model, internal
symmetry, Lorentz symmetry, transformations, invariance, conservation,
local and global symmetries, laws and symmetry, symmetry breaking,
color symmetry, periodic and quasiperiodic crystals, time-reversal
symmetry breaking, symmetry and complexity, Curie-Rosen symmetry
principles, constants, biophysics, entropy, and indistinguishability.
* Chemistry: crystal and crystallography; chiral molecules, chiral
resolution and asymmetric synthesis, asymmetric induction, chiral
auxiliaries and chiral catalysts, stereochemistry, diastereomers,
stereogenic, stereoisomers (enantiomers, atropisomers, diastereomers),
stability, mixing, and phase separation.
* Biology: symmetry in biology, radial symmetry (tetramerism,
pentamerism, etc.), diversity, preservation, sustainability,
morphology, origina of life, and molecular evolution (homochirality).
* Mathematics: invariance, transformation, group theory, Lie groups,
chirality, achiral or amphichiral, helix and Möbius strip, knot
theory, graph theory, isometry, plane of symmetry, skewness, vertex
algebra, asymmetry, dissymmetry, nonsymmetry and antisymmetry,
supergroups and nonlinear algebraic structures, supersymmetry and
supergravity, strings and branes, integrability and geometry,
information theory, Felix Klein's Erlangen Program, and continuous
* Computer Science, Theroy and Methods: computer-aided design,
computational geometry, computer graphics, visualization, image
compression, date compression, pattern recognition, diversity,
similarity, and conservation and sustainability.
* Symmetry and other scientific disciplines and engineering.
