    Special Issue on Mathematical Optimization and Its Application


    In mathematics, computer science and operations research, mathematical optimization is the selection of a best element from some set of available alternatives. In the simplest case, an optimization problem consists of maximizing or minimizing a real function by systematically choosing input values from within an allowed set and computing the value of the function. The generalization of optimization theory and techniques to other formulations constitutes a large area of applied mathematics. More generally, optimization includes finding "best available" values of some objective function given a defined domain (or input), including a variety of different types of objective functions and different types of domains.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on mathematical optimization and its application. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Multi-objective optimization
    • Optimization algorithms and iterative methods
    • Feasibility problem
    • Maximization and minimization problem
    • Objective function and optimal solution
    • Optimal control
    • Applications in mechanics, economics, civil engineering, etc.

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Mathematical Optimization and Its Application” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
