Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mathematical methods for solving economics and management problems are becoming more and more common. Not only are they used for the description of general theories in these social sciences, but also for practical tasks of management and optimization. They are behind the information systems that drive the running of large manufacturing, commercial and transport companies. Mathematical methods require the formulation of precise assumptions and the logical justification of each step of the process when solving problems. They provide a solid foundation for the further development and refinement of knowledge in economics or management. From another point of view, it can be stated that mathematical methods allow the emergence of models that can serve empirical testing and their adaptation to specific conditions.

Economics and management are dynamic areas that require the constant adaptation of knowledge to new conditions. Social developments bring about new phenomena that require new theories or new solutions. Mathematical methods are rich enough to provide the basis for this dynamic knowledge.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide the opportunity for all researchers in the field of the application of mathematical methods in economics and management to attempt to streamline existing methods and refine existing models or design new methods and develop new models.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Econometric models
  • Financial modelling
  • Economic theories
  • Numeric simulations
  • Agent-based simulations
  • System dynamics simulations
  • Microeconomy
  • Macroeconomy
  • Optimization methods
  • Operational research
  • Case studies
  • Empirical verification
  • Economic growth
  • Models of sustainability
  • Complex systems

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. Systems is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
