New focus of the journal "Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica"

January 18, 2021

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica is a most prestigious piece in Akadémiai Kiadó’s mathematical portfolio. Some of the greatest Hungarian mathematicians have chosen it to publish their findings. It was founded in 1966 by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and, by tradition, it is handled by the scientists of the Rényi Alfréd Instutute of Mathematics.

Starting with volume 58 in 2021, the editors decided to change the journal’s focus. From a general mathematical journal, it is turned to a forum of Combinatorics, Geometry and Topology (CoGeTo) – and the connections between these areas – as expressed by the new subtitle. The re-formed Editorial Board consists of internationally recognized experts representing these branches of mathematics. Their names are listed on the site of Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica. The Editors in Chief are the following professors from the Rényi Institute of Mathematics.

Gábor Simonyi is an expert on graph theory, information theory, extremal combinatorics, and, in particular, the behaviour of information theoretic functionals on graphs. He was awarded with various prizes such as the Alfréd Rényi Prize of the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; the Prize for Junior Researchers of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Géza Grünwald Prize of the János Bolyai Mathematical Society.

András Stipsicz is currently the director of the Rényi Institute of Mathematics and corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of sciences. His research interests include symplectic topology, Lefschetz fibration, contact topology, Stein fillings of contact 3-manifolds, Seiberg-Witten and Heegaard Floer homologies as well as Legendrian and transverse knot theory. He is a laureate of numerous prizes and principal investigator of international projects including ERC grants.

Géza Tóth is specialised in discrete and combinatorial geometry. He is the current Head of the Department of Geometry. He wrote more than a hundred articles in collaboration with the most renown experts of the field. He was awarded with the Alfréd Rényi Prize of the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; the Prize for Junior Researchers and the Pál Erdős Prize of the Hungarian Academy; and the Géza Grünwald Medal of the János Bolyai Mathematical Society.

While changing the scope, Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica remains a hybrid journal that is distributed both in the subscription model and with Open Access (with Article Processing Charge paid by the authors or covered by the EISZ “Read and Publish” agreement for eligible authors).
