Idempotent or tropical mathematics is the family of mathematical disciplines that use idempotent semirings and semifields instead of fields. This substitution of fields by idempotent semifields and semirings could be applied to many constructions from traditional mathematics. The language of idempotent mathematics (or idempotent analysis or idempotent calculus) creates a unified theory for treating a wide class of the optimization problems via linear (in the new algebra) methods leading theoretically to a circle of result that can be referred to as the idempotent functional analysis.
Idempotent or tropical mathematics is an asymptotic version of traditional mathematics. It can be considered as the result of the application of the dequantization procedure to traditional mathematics. The Planck constant in this asymptotic analysis belongs to the imaginary axis and goes to zero. New asymptotic methods are developed based on this idea.
Methods of idempotent analysis are useful for numerical calculations of the systems of differential or algebraic equations often leading to curse-of-dimensionality-free methods.
The numeric methods provide the main asymptotic terms with interval estimations of solutions. Application of idempotent mathematics are numerous in mathematical physics (de-quantization, thermodynamics), chemical engineering and system biology (including chemical kinetics and the analysis of multiscale dynamics), the theory of dimension and entropy (including fractal and negative dimensions), in models of economics and finances, in the theory of complexity, approximation theory in high dimensions, and nonlinear problems of optimal control and optimization, among others.

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 1800 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.
