Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

In financial research, mathematical modelling allows for the establishment of a functional relationship between multiple variables, thereby being an effective method with which to analyse and solve problems in financial economics. Mathematical models underpin our understanding of many problems in financial economics, ranging from Markowitz’s (1952) mean-variance optimisation, which underpins modern portfolio theory (MPT), to the Black–Scholes–Merton model for option pricing and the Black–Litterman model, which incorporates investors’ views of expected returns in MPT. Advancements in the fields of statistical and machine learning have led towards uses in the areas of credit risk and asset pricing. In this context, we are seeking to publish high-quality research on fund management, risk management (i.e., credit, market, and operational), portfolio optimisation, asset pricing, option pricing, volatility spillovers, and any other topics related to mathematical finance. We pay particular attention to the importance of the use of big data and AI/ML techniques in financial economics. We encourage the submission of quantitative research works.

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. 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.
