Physics and Symmetry/Asymmetry

A section of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).

Section Information

The “Physics and Symmetry/Asymmetry” section covers topics, original research, and peer-reviewed articles related to the latest research and developments in any field of physics where symmetry plays a key role. This is a vast, highly interdisciplinary area, which runs the gamut from classical symmetries, to space-time symmetries, gauge symmetries, symmetry breaking, the origin of symmetry, etc. Areas of physics relevant to this section include mathematical physics, classical and quantum gravity, particles and fields, condensed matter systems, dynamical, disordered, and non-equilibrium systems, and biophysics.
In general, this section will be a platform for researchers to publish their scientific work, helping them to influence the scientific community as well as the general public.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of the topics covered in this section:
