Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In applied research, Probability Theory is usually regarded as a distant, often neglected relative of Statistics. We try to rectify this misconception by publishing papers underlying new applications and original models for real-world problems, from either natural, computer or social sciences that are based on Probability and Stochastic Processes.
The suggested, yet not restrictive, topics include the following:
- Cellular automata;
- Bayes analysis;
- Markov processes and related topics;
- Hidden Markov processes;
- Applications of stochastic processes in Economics, Finance, Social Sciences, etc.;
- Stochastic modeling;
- Measures of divergence and entropy;
- Monte Carlo simulations.

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.
