Computational Optimization in Differential Equations: Algorithms and Applications

Call for Papers

In applied mathematics, computer science, economics, or management science, computational optimization is the selection of a best element with regard to some criteria from some set of available alternatives. A computational 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 comprises a large area of applied mathematics and computer science.

Based on the wide applications in engineering and sciences such as differential and integral operator's equations, physics, mechanics, chemistry, and biology, research on computational optimization and other relative topics is active and extensive around the world. In the past few years, the increase of the subject is witnessed by hundreds of research papers, several monographs, and many international conferences.

This special issue will be a devoted topic to high current interest falling within the scope of the journal and will attract many papers of the highest quality. The objective of this special issue is to highlight the importance of optimization and their applications and let the readers of this journal know about the possibilities of this new tool and to provide a multidisciplinary forum of discussions among scientists who have been interested in investigating diverse branches related to optimization techniques and applying theories of optimization to their diverse research areas. This issue is expected to welcome articles of significant and original results and articles of exceptional merit, which are closely related to computational optimization in either theoretical or applicative sense.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Optimization techniques
    • Applications of optimization techniques in solving differential, integral, and integrodifferential equations of different types, orders, and category
    • Applications of optimization techniques in solving stochastic equations of differential and integral operator type
    • Computational optimization for oscillation and nonoscillation in neutral delay differential equations
    • Computational optimization in solving difference-differential equations
  • Algorithms
