AIP Publishing of Melville has named Professor Jan Philip Solovej as editor in chief of its Journal of Mathematical Physics.
The University of Copenhagen professor will oversee the peer-reviewed journal publishing original research and reviews that connect the application of mathematics to problems in physics.
“AIP Publishing is pleased that Jan Philip Solovej has agreed to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Mathematical Physics, which he has served as an Associate Editor since 2013. When JMP launched in 1960, it was the first journal in the field of mathematical physics. We are confident that JMP will continue to be on the forefront of its field under his direction,” said Jason Wilde, Ph.D., AIPP’s Chief Publishing Officer. He added, “We want to take this opportunity to thank Bruno L. Z. Nachtergaele for his dedicated stewardship of JMP since 2006.”
Solovej said, “I am honored to step up to become Editor-in-Chief of JMP, a journal that has published some of the best papers from outstanding mathematicians and physicists over the last 60 years, and I look forward to building on this distinguished legacy as quantum physics is sparking a revolution in science and technology.”
Prof. Solovej is professor of mathematics at the University of Copenhagen, and the Centre Leader of the Villum Centre of Excellence for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (). His research focuses on mathematical understanding of quantum physics, specifically in the stability and structure of atoms, Bose and Fermi gases, and thermodynamic stability.
In addition to his faculty and QMATH positions, Prof. Solovej currently sits on the Board of the Independent Research Fund in Denmark and was elected to the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2000. He was previously a faculty member at Princeton University, where he also earned his Ph.D. in 1989, and held various positions at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute, Université Paris (6 and Dauphine), Aarhus University, University of Toronto and University of Michigan. He has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of European Mathematical Society and the Journal of Spectral Theory.
