Special Issue "Discrete and Computational Geometry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Discrete and Computational Geometry is a well-stablished research field, lying between Mathematics and Computer Science and intertwining two disciplines.
On one hand, Discrete Geometry is a branch of Discrete Mathematics dealing with the study of geometric objects and properties. More concretely, it considers problems involving finite sets of simple geometric objects, like points, lines, circles, triangles, cubes, or hyperplanes, for which questions such as number, incidences, or relative position are typical objects of study.
On the other hand, Computational Geometry is a branch of Computer Science aiming to design efficient algorithms for solving geometric problems. An important part of this process is the study of the time and space complexity, the data structures to be used, or the complexity of the output.
This Special Issue aims to provide readers with original research articles and review articles presenting novel results in discrete and/or computational geometry. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Discrete combinatorial geometry;
- Design, analysis, and implementation of geometric algorithms and data structures;
- Discrete geometric optimization;
- Bounds for the computational complexity of geometric problems;
- Experimental evaluation of geometric algorithms;
- Geometric modeling and visualization;
- Computational geometry multidisciplinary applications (robotics, geographic information systems, CAGD, etc.).
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. 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 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.
