Interests: lie algebras; group theoretical methods in physics; mechanics; differential equations; supersymmetry
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
It is probably not an exaggeration to state that representation theory of Lie algebras and their generalizations constitutes one of the most recurring techniques encountered in mathematical and physical problems dealing with the linearization of nonlinear phenomena. Beyond structure theory, representations play a prominent role in invariant theory, both algebraic and geometric, as well as in many applications like differential equations, integrable systems, quantum groups, gauge theories, or string theory, among many other topics.
We invite researchers to contribute original papers and review articles concerning currently open problems within the representation theory of Lie algebras, superalgebras, and generalized algebraic structures, such as ternary or n-ary algebras, Leibniz algebras, etc., also covering applications in other disciplines. Articles describing new methods with strong geometrical and/or computational background are particularly welcome, as well as papers concerning methods of representation theory in chemistry, physics, and engineering sciences.

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.
