Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The focus of this Special Issue of Mathematics lies in two fascinating areas of modern mathematics with a broad spectrum of applications ranging from theoretical physics to signal processing, namely, microlocal and time-frequency analysis. The fruitful interaction between the two disciplines is witnessed by the vast body of literature published in recent decades. It is worth mentioning the following problems among several ones which have benefited from this joint perspective, without any claim of being exhaustive: properties of quantization rules, pseudodifferential and Fourier integral operators; algebras of sparse operators in phase space; well-posedness of nonlinear dispersive PDEs and representation of their solutions; wave front sets and propagation of singularities.

In order to further explore these research trends, we solicit original, high-quality papers on microlocal and time-frequency analysis and their applications. Contributions on related topics, including for instance mathematical signal processing, harmonic analysis, and mathematical physics are welcome as well, provided that they mainly focus on aspects of or connections with microlocal and Gabor analysis. We also invite expository and review papers by senior researchers aimed at elucidating finer points or highlighting techniques of broad interest.

The contributions may be submitted on a continuous basis before the deadline and will be selected, after a peer-review process by leading experts, in view of both their quality and relevance.

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 1200 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.
