Mathematics: The S. cerevisae for Natural Science Research


It is generally perceived that there is a big gap between mathematical research and mathematics which is actually applied to practical sciences and technology. Sometimes, it is said that mathematics has gone so far ahead, farther than physics, that the frontier mathematics can hardly be applied to practice. This is often accelerated to the opinion that mathematical research is not needed for the society and that research is just for fun. To streamline this misunderstood situation, we should mathematize some of the most appealing research areas.

The main aim of this special issue is to try to abridge this big gap, with mathematical aerobic yeast between theoretical research and practical implementation in several far-reaching disciplines. At present, we have in mind mainly two fields: first, life science–from the point of view of molecular dynamics, which can include several basic fields such as biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics as well as applied disciplines such as molecular biology and thermodynamics. Secondly, systems theory which can have a wide range of practical applications and in which there are contained basic mathematics such as differential equations, complex analysis, and stability theory.

We welcome high-standard research papers and review articles in the issue in such disciplines that could be mathematized in due course, high standard in the sense that a paper should shed some light on the way application-oriented mathematics should go on not being biased to pure research and that it gives more enlightening expounding of relevant areas for researchers, especially for mathematicians, including molecular biology, molecular dynamics, and life sciences.

All these lead us to launching on a special issue of the journal International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences and call for papers. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Molecular dynamics, especially papers treating mathematical aspects of life science, molecular biology, especially research on DNA from the point of view of formal language theory or from coding theory, self-reproducing automata, and fractals
  • Systems theory, especially linear systems in many engineering disciplines. Here, many problems in matrices appear as an MIMO (multiple input-multiple output) system
  • Any other (survey) papers which have possible buds for a new research in mathematical sciences, whose mathematical contents could be rather limited
