Special Issue "Symmetry in Numerical Linear and Multilinear Algebra"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2020).
Interests: numerical linear algebra; complex networks
Symmetry is one of the most pervading concepts in numerical linear and multilinear algebra. Mathematical models of real-world phenomena often exhibit algebraic, geometric or combinatorial symmetries, which are encoded into specially structured matrices and tensors. In fact, an increasing number of physical models and data analysis problems involve the manipulation of numerical arrays of which the elements are addressed by two or more indices and possess invariance properties with respect to permutations or shifting of their indices. Exploiting that structure is of paramount importance not only for theoretical analysis but also in order to devise fast and accurate computational cores for, e.g., direct or iterative solution of linear equations, matrix preconditioning and decomposition, eigenvalue/eigenvector computations, solution of matrix equations, etc.
This Special Issue invites significant and original contributions in numerical linear and multilinear algebra involving symmetry, in a broad sense. Contributions may address theoretical aspects, applications, and related computational issues. We welcome manuscripts addressing matrices and tensors having symmetric or displacement structures, their spectral and computational properties, as well as their occurrence and applications in linear differential equations, inverse problems, signal processing, optimization problems, machine learning, and network science.

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. Symmetry 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 1800 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.
