|Edited by||Vitali Milman (editor-in-chief), Mikhail Gromov, Simon Donaldson, Peter Sarnak.|
Geometric and Functional Analysis (GAFA) (ISSN 1016-443X) is a mathematical journal published by Birkhäuser, an independent division of Springer-Verlag. The journal is published approximately bi-monthly.
The journal publishes papers on broad range of topics in geometry and analysis including geometric analysis, riemannian geometry, symplectic geometry, geometric group theory, non-commutative geometry, automorphic forms and analytic number theory, and others.
GAFA is both an acronym and a part of the official full name of the journal.
The journal Geometric and Functional Analysis (GAFA) was founded in 1991 by Mikhail Gromov and Vitali Milman. The idea for the journal was inspired by the long-running Israeli seminar series "Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis (GAFA)" of which Vitali Milman had been one of the main organizers in the previous years. The journal retained the same acronym as the series to stress the connection between the two.
The journal is reviewed cover-to-cover in Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt MATH and is indexed cover-to-cover in the Web of Science. According to the 2007 issue of Journal Citation Reports, the journal Geometric and Functional Analysis had the impact factor of 1.026.
