It is well known that variational inequality was introduced by Hartman and Stampacchia in 1966, and was later expanded by Stampacchia. Since then, variational inequality and its various generalizations have become very effective and quite powerful tools in the study of the many problems arising from differential equations, mechanics, contact problems, optimization and control problems, management science, operations research, general equilibrium problems in economics and transportation, unilateral, obstacle, moving, and so on. The motivation of this Special Issue is to report and collect the recent developments of variational inequality in both theory and applications. This Special Issue deals mainly with the theory and applications of variational inequalities and related problems; in particular, any work including new ideas, novelty techniques, and/or results on variational inequalities and its relevant problems are welcome. We are accepting high-quality research or review papers. The purpose of this Special Issue is to connect the efforts of various scientists (particularly mathematicians and engineers), for whom various variational inequality problems are important in their research activity.Prof. Dr. Jen-Chih Yao
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.
