## Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your latest research in the area of discrete optimization to this Special Issue, “Discrete Optimization: Theory, Algorithms, and Applications” in the journal *Mathematics*. We are looking for new and innovative approaches for solving discrete optimization problems exactly or approximately. High-quality papers are solicited to address both theoretical and practical issues of discrete optimization. Submissions are welcome presenting new theoretical results, structural investigations, new models and algorithmic approaches as well new applications of discrete optimization problems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, integer programming, combinatorial optimization, graph-theoretic problems, matroids, scheduling, and logistics.

Prof. Dr. Frank Werner*Guest Editor*

**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.
