Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nonlinear and convex analysis has played important roles in mathematics, engineering, economics, and physics. Nonlinear analysis is very prolific in modern mathematical analysis. Solving the nonlinear problems that are coming from different areas is always based on the techniques developed in nonlinear analysis. Convexity in mathematical analysis is an ancient idea, which is always adopted to formulate mathematical problems so that they are more solvable by applying the existent mathematical tools and computer resources. The topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Applied functional analysis;
  • Convex risk measure in mathematical finance;
  • Differential and integral equations;
  • Equilibrium theory in mathematical economics;
  • Fixed point theory and its applications;
  • Game theory in mathematical economics;
  • Nonlinear and convex analysis using fuzzy mathematics;
  • Nonsmooth analysis and optimization;
  • Set-valued analysis;
  • Topological methods in nonlinear analysis;
  • Variational analysis.

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.
