The origin of the fixed-point theory can be traced back to the middle of the 1980s, to the method of successive approximation for the solutions of certain differential equations. Indeed, fixed point theory lies at the intersection of functional analysis, topology, and applied mathematics. Due to its nature, fixed point theory has a wide application not only in mathematics but also in several qualitative sciences, such as economics, computer sciences, physics, engineering, and so on.
This Special Issue aims to collect significant contributions and advances in theoretical fixed point theory, as well as new and interesting applications in mathematics or other qualitative sciences.
We invite researchers to submit their significant results to this Special Issue with original, high-level papers. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Metric fixed-point theorems;
- Ulam–Hyers stability and well-posedness of fixed-point problems;
- The computation of fixed points and applications;
- Approximate solutions of fixed-point problems and applications;
- Optimization and applications;
- Ekeland variational principle with applications to fixed point theory;
- Fractional (integral-differential) calculus;
- Fixed points of multi-valued monotone operators and the solvability of a fractional integral inclusion;
- Best proximity theory and its applications;
- Iterative fixed-point theory;
- Discrete fixed-point theory

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.
