Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Integrable PDEs (partial differential equations) are a special class of PDEs that can be solved exactly, meaning that an explicit expression for the solution can be obtained. This contrasts with non-integrable PDEs, where exact solutions are generally not possible, and numerical methods must be used.

Integrable PDEs have been studied extensively over the past several decades, and many powerful mathematical methods have been developed for their analysis. These methods include the inverse scattering transform, the inverse spectral method (including Riemann–Hilbert problems), the method of dressing transformations, the Painlevé test, and the Lax pair method.

Integrable PDEs have important applications in many areas of science and engineering, including fluid mechanics, quantum field theory, nonlinear optics, and soliton theory. Some examples of integrable PDEs include the Korteweg–de Vries equation, the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, and the sine-Gordon equation. The study of integrable PDEs has led to many important insights into the nature of nonlinear phenomena and has opened up new avenues for research in a wide range of fields.

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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
