List of Editorial Advisers

Aims and Scope

The aim of the LMS JCM  is to publish internationally-leading papers addressing topics in computational pure and applied mathematics, including papers at the interface of Mathematics and Computer Science. The Board of Editorial Advisers represents the full range of subjects and has a particularly large presence in Theoretical Computer Science.

The LMS JCM  Editors additionally welcome proposals from organisers of leading conferences in the subject to publish their proceedings. The Proceedings of the Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium XI  (GyeongJu, Korea, 2014)  were published by the LMS JCM  in August 2014.
