Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of independent input variables leads to the development of highly limited mathematical and statistical tools for functional analysis. Non-independent variables arise when two or more variables do not vary freely and are widely encountered in different scientific fields such as data analysis, quantitative risk analysis, inverse problems, and uncertainty quantification. Such variables are often characterized by their covariance matrices, distribution functions, copulas, and weighted distributions. Recently, dependency models have provided explicit functions that link these variables together by means of additional independent variables. This Special Issue will focus on mathematical and statistical analysis of functions with non-independent variables in different aspects of model development, such as model calibration, model validation, robustness analysis, optimization, model uncertainty, and model reduction. The goal of this Special Issue is to advance our understanding and learning on functions with non-independent variables by bringing together researchers from engineering, physical and social sciences, mathematics, and statistics to create a forum for the latest research and applications of functions with non-independent variables.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Axioms 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 2400 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.
