Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

After the theories of ordinary differential equations and integral equations have been consolidated (in the mid 20th Century), new types of functional or functional differential quations, or mixed type as integrodifferential equations have caught the attention of the research world.

We should mention first that the equations with deviated arguments, usually delayed, are able to describe causal phenomena, or equations involving various operators. The birth of Functional Analysis has produced new tools to investigate new types of functional equations. Notably, the fathers of Functional Analysis, such as Volterra, Radon and F. Riesz, had preoccupations in this regard. While the classical types of functional or functional differential equations have reached an advanced stage/status, the new types of equations are not yet very advanced. Extra efforts and dedication are necessary to further these relatively new theories in cases of non-classical types of functional differential equations. Attention must be directed, in both finite and infinite cases of dimensions, as required by the new applications on the horizon.

The above is the goal of this issue of our journal. Thank you for your cooperation.

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 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 1600 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.

There has been a surge of work on models for coupling surface-water with groundwater flows which is at its core the Stokes-Darcy problem. The resulting (Stokes-Darcy) fluid velocity is important because the flow transports contaminants. The analysis of models including the transport of contaminants has, however, focused on a quasi-static Stokes-Darcy model. Herein we consider the fully evolutionary system including contaminant transport and analyze its quasi-static limits. Full article

Abstract
In order to obtain the conditions for the existence of periodic and almost periodic solutions of Volterra difference equations, \( x(n+1)=f(n,x(n))+\sum_{s=-\infty}^{n}F(n,s, {x(n+s)},x(n)) \), we consider certain stability properties, which are referred to as (K, \( \rho \))-weakly uniformly-asymptotic stability and (K, \( \rho [...] Read more.
In order to obtain the conditions for the existence of periodic and almost periodic solutions of Volterra difference equations, \( x(n+1)=f(n,x(n))+\sum_{s=-\infty}^{n}F(n,s, {x(n+s)},x(n)) \), we consider certain stability properties, which are referred to as (K, \( \rho \))-weakly uniformly-asymptotic stability and (K, \( \rho \))-uniformly asymptotic stability. Moreover, we discuss the relationship between the \( \rho \)-separation condition and the uniformly-asymptotic stability property in the \( \rho \) sense. Full article
