"Proceedings of Pontecorvo100, Symposium in honour of Bruno Pontecorvo for the Centennial of the birth"
edited by A. M. Baldini, V. Cavasinni, F. Cei and D. Nicolò
The symposium was organized by INFN, Università di Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore, JINR- Dubna, and CERN to celebrate the famous scientist on the centennial of his birth (Marina di Pisa, 22 August 1913) and was held in Pisa on 18-20 September 2013. The volume contains some biographic presentations and recollections of friends and colleagues, followed by contributions of outstanding international experts who presented a complete overview of the status of the art in the different fields constituting the inheritance of Bruno's ideas.

Quantum imaging technologies
M. Malik and R. W. Boyd
Quantum mechanics has allowed the development of technologies for secure communication, while the quantum nature of the transverse electromagnetic field has spawned the field of quantum imaging with new technologies such as quantum lithography, quantum ghost imaging, and high-dimensional quantum key distribution (QKD). In this review four techniques are described: The first extends the principles behind QKD to the field of imaging and optical ranging. The second is based on an extension of quantum ghost imaging. The third is a high-dimensional QKD system. The fourth uses sequential weak and strong measurements to characterize a quantum state.
The European Physical Journal E – Soft Matter and Biological Physics
The European Physical Journal (EPJ) is a merger of the three traditional journals Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences), Il Nuovo Cimento (Italian Physical Society) and Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer-Verlag) into a single European platform of publication and is co-published by all three publishers. Its section "E" publishes papers describing advances in the understanding of physical aspects of Soft Matter and Biological Systems. This includes reports of experimental, computational and theoretical studies and appeals to the broad interdisciplinary communities including physics, chemistry, biology and materials science. The range of topics is extensive: going from polymers, liquid crystals, complex fluids, colloids, nanoparticles and granular matter to biological matter, cellular processes and biological networks.
