A special issue of Mathematics (ISSN 2227-7390).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
Prof. Ilya Shilin
Due mainly to their remarkable properties, for centuries, a surprisingly large number of special functions have been developed and applied in a variety of fields, such as combinatorics, astronomy, applied mathematics, physics, and engineering. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to be a forum of recently-developed theories and formulas of special functions with their possible applications to some other research areas. This Special Issue includes certain theories, formulas, and applications of gamma function, beta function, multiple gamma functions, and their q-extensions and other extensions; confluent hypergeometric functions, hypergeometric function, generalized hypergeometric functions, multiple hypergeometric functions, their various extensions and associated polynomials; Bernoulli numbers and polynomials, Euler numbers and polynomials, other classical numbers and polynomials, a variety of recently developed numbers and polynomials; Riemann zeta function, generalized (Hurwitz zeta) function, multiple Hurwitz zeta functions, multiple zeta values, and their extensions; special functions and the theory of group representations; and their applications. However, this Special Issue is not limited to the above list, when the content of a paper is related to some special functions and their applications.

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 monthly 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 850 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.
