About the Serial Volume Editors

Roman Poznanski

Roman Poznanski

Roman R. Poznanski develops theories in neuroscience with mathematics. He recently co-authored the book, “Mathematical Neuroscience.” His passion remains to pinpoint and crack open complex problems holding back our understanding of how the brain works. He is adamant, that a new Einstein in neuroscience will one day produce a complete theory of the brain, not as a hodgepodge of models, but as an integrative theory expressed in terms of modern mathematics. He has over 20 years experience as a theoretician and modeller in the neurosciences. He has edited several contemporary books: Biophysical Neural Networks (2001) and Modeling in the Neurosciences (1999, 2005). He is currently a visiting professor at the Rockefeller University.

Erkki Brandas

Erkki Brändas was born in Tampere, Finland in July1940 and was, as a Finnish war child, transported to Sweden in February 1942, finally adopted by his Swedish parents and given Swedish citizenship in 1947. He received his FL (PhD) in 1969 and Doctor of Philosophy (habilitation) in 1972, both at Uppsala University. Except for guest professorships in USA, Germany, Israel, he spent his professional career in Uppsala employed as Assistant- Associate- and Full Professor from 1975 until retirement in 2007. In addition to serving as chairman of the department of Quantum Chemistry, he was appointed Executive Director of the Uppsala Graduate School Advanced Instrumentation and Measurement supervising the doctoral education of 35 PhD’s from 1997-2007. He has served on various international scientific and editorial boards, e.g. Wiley, Elsevier and Springer including the service as Editor-in-Chief for the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, Series Editor of the Advances in Quantum Chemistry. He is the current President of the International Society for Theoretical Chemical Physics, since 15 years, chairing a variety of international congresses and other numerous meetings, schools and workshops. He has published over 260 articles and edited more than 50 books on fundamental theoretical chemical physics from research on atoms, molecules and solid-state physics to complex enough systems in biology – from the microscopic realm to the cosmological rank.
