Applied Stochastic Models and Data Analysis (ASMDA) aims to serve as the interface between Stochastic Modelling and Data Analysis and their applications particularly in Business Finance and Insurance Management and Production. The main objective is to publish papers both technical and practical presenting new results which have potential for solving real-life problems. Another objective is to present new methods for solving these problems by analysing the relevant data. Also the use of recent advances in different fields will be promoted such as new optimization and statistical methods data base management and knowledge acquisition expert systems computer-aided decision supports and neural computing. ASMDA also publishes significant survey papers as well as papers that compare various relevant approaches for solving important problems. Guest editors will be invited from time to time to devote a section of the Journal to a special subject or theme. These special sections will include papers followed by comments and authors' reactions. The role played by the Journal as an interface between theory and practice means that it will be of great interest to those in both academic and business worlds. The high standard of the Journal will be guaranteed by the presence of an international Editorial Board. This will ensure the efficiency of the refereeing procedure. The Papers should be sent to: Professor J. Janssen Université Libre de Bruxelles Ecole de Commerce SOLVAY Centre d'Analyse des Données et Processus Stochastiques (CADEPS) 50 Avenue F.-D. Roosevelt-cp 194/7 B-1050 Brussels Belgium.
JPPA publishes the results of fundamental studies on all aspects of chemical phenomena induced by interactions between light and molecules/matter of all kinds. All systems capable of being described at the molecular or integrated multimolecular level are appropriate for the journal. This includes all molecular chemical species as well as biomolecular, supramolecular, polymer and other macromolecular systems. In addition, the journal publishes studies of semiconductor and other photoactive organic and inorganic materials. The scope includes condensed and gas phase photochemistry, as well as synchrotron radiation chemistry. A broad range of processes and techniques in photochemistry are covered such as light induced energy, electron and proton transfer; nonlinear photochemical behavior; mechanistic investigation of photochemical reactions and identification of the products of photochemical reactions; quantum yield determinations and measurements of rate constants for primary and secondary photochemical processes; steady-state and time-resolved emission, ultrafast spectroscopic methods, single molecule spectroscopy, time resolved X-ray diffraction, luminescence microscopy, and scattering spectroscopy applied to photochemistry. Papers in emerging and applied areas such as luminescent sensors, solar energy conversion, atmospheric photochemistry, environmental remediation, and related photocatalytic chemistry are also welcome.
