## Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mathematical logic is a thriving field of mathematics with a wide range of various applications.

The volume accepts high-quality papers with original research in mathematical logic and applications, with the main (but not only) focus on descriptive set theory, definability, and forcing, on the one hand, and algorithmic and combinatorial optimization, including optimization by linear (or near-linear complexity) algorithms, as well as exact algorithms of low computational complexity or, by contrast, NP-hardness of the corresponding problem, on the other hand.

We gladly invite papers to this Special Issue related to applications of mathematical logic to mathematical physics, mathematical biology, and theoretical medicine. These topics, both fundamental and applied, cover many important modern trends.

Prof. Dr. Vassily Lyubetsky

**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 2100 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.
