You may have seen stories about umbral moonshine in the news recently. You might not have also seen an article by the topic’s pioneers in one of SpringerOpen’s ambitious new journals.
About a year ago, SpringerOpen launched Research in the Mathematical Sciences, an ambitious, broad-range mathematics journal headed up by Ken Ono, the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics at Emory University. (Bjorn Engquist at UT Austin, Daivd Shmoys at Cornell, and Yuri Tschinkel at NYU round out the Editors-in-Chief slate.)
But instead of me bloviating about it, why don’t I let Professor Ono tell you all about the journal?
