Interests: operations research/management science; mathematical programming; interior point methods; multiobjective optimization; control theory; computational and algebraic geometry; artificial neural networks; kernel methods; evolutionary programming; global optimization
Papers related with the theory of quantum optimization and applications are welcomed. Special interest will be given to global optimization, but any other quantum optimization algorithm will fit this Special Issue. Applications of quantum optimization in machine learning and big data are also welcome.
Quantum computation provides tools to solve two broad classes of optimization problems: Semi-definite programming (SDP) and constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs). For example, in 2016, a quantum algorithm for SDP was developed that is quadratically faster in the number of constraints and variables. SDP finds a number of applications in machine learning. The quantum approximate optimization algorithm and the quantum adiabatic algorithm are known for CSPs. New problems related with machine learning require more efficient optimization algorithms to handle big data.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
