Special Issue "Principles of Variational Methods in Mathematical Physics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 4893
This Special Issue is devoted to the fundamental principles of variational methods, theoretical aspects related to main theorems and the multitude of variants for the mentioned results, together with the various problems in mathematical physics that are solved in such a way. Review articles, original papers and short communications are welcome. Both theoretical approaches and applications are expected.
The aim of this Special Issue is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible; there is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.
The main topics of this Special Issue:
- Fundamental variational principles—variants, related results, and applications;
- Minimax, mountain pass and saddle-point-type theorems and their applications;
- Main mathematical physics problems solved with the above statements;
- Numerical methods to achieve the passage from mentioned theory towards the design of the solutions for mathematical physics problems evolved from modeling real phenomena.
Interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary papers are welcome.
Drawing this general line from the most abstract frame toward the design of a concrete solution of a real-world model highlights the importance of such a collection of works, as this is the key to scientific knowledge. The novelty is the expression of such a vision, and I consider that this Special Issue can supplement the existing literature.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
