Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the era of big data, a significant amount of research efforts has been devoted to the inter-discipline of applied probability, statistics, and operations research, with new methodologies and theories developed to resolve real-life problems. The focus of this Special Issue is oriented toward, but not limited to, the asymptotic analysis and optimization of probabilistic models, the development of novel statistical inference methods, as well as the data-driven decision-making process. Applications of new analytical tools to interesting real-life scenarios are also welcome. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers in the three disciplines to share their recent advances related to the fields and discuss insights into future research opportunities and challenges.

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.
