Prof. Philip Holmes is an internationally prominent mathematician and engineer whose fundamental contributions to the theory and applications of nonlinear dynamical systems span solid and fluid mechanics, animal locomotion, neuroscience, and cognition. This AMR audio interview describes an unconventional path from writing poetry in the Yorkshire Dales to writing the seminal textbook Nonlinear Oscillations, Dynamical Systems, and Bifurcations of Vector Fields with John Guckenheimer, for which the authors were awarded the American Mathematical Society Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition in 2013.
The Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement, and Control publishes theoretical and applied original papers in the traditional areas implied by its name, as well as papers in interdisciplinary areas. Theoretical papers are expected to present new theoretical developments and knowledge for controls of dynamical systems together with clear engineering motivation for the new theory. New theory or results that are only of mathematical interest without a clear engineering motivation or have a cursory relevance only are discouraged. "Application" is taken to include modeling, simulation of realistic systems, and corroboration of theory with emphasis on demonstrated practicality.
