Environmental Modeling

Call for Papers

In recent years, there has been much interest in modeling environmental phenomena using ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, delay differential equations, or difference equations. Application areas range from ecosystems to models that include economic factors to models that take into account pollution effects. The mathematical exploration of such systems can play a key role in developing a better understanding of the related real-world situations.

This special issue welcomes research papers focused on rigorous mathematical analysis, modeling and simulation, optimal control, and any other relevant studies using differential equations. We will consider papers on environmental modelling using differential or difference equations, dealing with direct problems, inverse problems, or a combination of both. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Direct problems:
    • Formulation of related mathematical models
    • Advances in analysis of such models
    • Exploration of such models via simulation
  • Inverse problems:
    • Parameter estimation
    • Model identification
    • Analysis related to the inverse problems
