Variational Methods and Critical Point Theory

Description

Minimization and variational problems are at the interface between nonlinear analysis, calculus of variations, differential equations, and mathematical physics and play a fundamental role in the application of mathematics to real-world problems. Hence, it is important to develop new theoretical and applicable results in this area, and it is also of interest to apply known methods to some new classes of problems.

We invite the authors to submit original research and review articles on variational methods and critical point theory and also original articles that explore new approaches or possibilities to apply this technology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Variational methods
  • Critical point theory
  • Morse theory
  • Lusternik-Scnirelman theory
  • Variational inequalities
  • Ordinary differential equations
  • Partial differential equations
  • Difference equations
  • Impulsive and shock dynamical systems
  • Equations on Riemann manifolds
  • Applications to physics, economics, optimal control, engineering, industrial mathematics, biology, and medicine
  • Computational and numerical methods

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
