“I have explained the phenomena of the heavens and of our sea by the force of gravity, but I have not yet assigned a cause to gravity.”

– Isaac Newton, English mathematician and physicist (1642–1727)


Soliciting Proposals

The Institute for Celestial Geodynamics (IfCG) solicits proposals from academic, governmental or professional organizations, or qualified individuals for specific, narrowly focused research projects. IfCG solicits such proposals for projects that typically involve advanced mathematical analysis. To pursue constant improvement and excellence in our work, the IfCG intends, through these project partnerships, to fill-in details—open questions that may have been raised in our posted articles—which, in the interest of maintaining momentum and focus in our investigations, were noted, but temporarily left unresolved.

The IfCG requires that any publications which result from such projects have, within a few months of publication date, a version on the Internet that is free and open to the public with a Creative Commons (CC) license. (For a CC description, see “Public Use of IfCG Publications” under the “About Us” link). Further, IfCG expects to either host such versions on our website (preferable) or link to them.
