Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Yang-Baxter equation first appeared in theoretical physics, in a paper (1968) by the Nobel laureate C.N. Yang, and in statistical mechanics, in R.J. Baxter's work (1971). Later, it turned out that this equation plays a crucial role in: quantum groups, knot theory, braided categories, analysis of integrable systems, quantum mechanics, non-commutative descent theory, quantum computing, non-commutative geometry, etc.

Many scientists have used the axioms of various algebraic structures (quasi-triangular Hopf algebras, Yetter-Drinfeld categories, Lie (super)algebras, algebra structures, Boolean algebras, etc) or computer calculations in order to produce solutions for the Yang-Baxter equation. However, the full classification of its solutions remains an open problem.

Contributions related to the various aspects of the Yang-Baxter equations, the related algebraic structures, and their applications are invited. We would like to gather together both relevant reviews (with historical notes, open problems or research directions) and research papers (on the new developments of the Yang-Baxter equations).

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
