The Journal of Geometric Mechanics (JGM) aims to publish research articles devoted to geometric methods (in a broad sense) in mechanics and control theory, and intends to facilitate interaction between theory and applications. Advances in the following topics are welcomed by the journal:

1. Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics
2. Symplectic and Poisson geometry and their applications to mechanics
3. Geometric and optimal control theory
4. Geometric and variational integration
5. Geometry of stochastic systems
6. Geometric methods in dynamical systems
7. Continuum mechanics
8. Classical field theory
9. Fluid mechanics
10. Infinite-dimensional dynamical systems
11. Quantum mechanics and quantum information theory
12. Applications in physics, technology, engineering and the biological sciences

More detailed information on the subjects covered by the journal can be found by viewing the fields of research of the members of the editorial board.

The journal is published by the American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, with the support of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). Contributions to this journal are published free of charge.

JGM will have four issues published in 2017 in March, June, September and December and is a publication of the American Institute of Mathematical Sciences. All rights reserved.
