Thematic series on Fixed Point Theory: Theory, Computation and Applications

Fixed Point Theory and Applications welcomes submissions to the new thematic series on Fixed Point Theory: Theory, Computation and Applications.

This thematic series is devoted to the latest achievements in fixed point theory, computation and applications. It will reflect state-of-the-art abstract research, as well as important recent advances in computation and applications.

One of the most dynamic area of research in the last 50 years, fixed point theory plays a fundamental role in several theoretical and applied mathematics, such as nonlinear analysis, integral and differential equations and inclusions, dynamical system theory, mathematics of fractals, mathematical economics (game theory, equilibrium problems, optimization problems), as well as mathematical modelling. This special issue will present relevant works related to the theory of fixed points and its various applications to pure, applied and computational mathematics. Special attention will be paid to the most important theories developed by Professor Ioan A. Rus and the Cluj-Napoca Fixed Point Theory School: the Picard operator theory, the fixed point structure theory and other aspects of fixed point theory.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fixed point structures and applications
  • Picard and weakly Picard operator theory and applications
  • Convergence of iterative schemes and applications
  • Fixed point algorithms and computation of the xed points
  • Coincidence point theory and applications
  • Surjectivity theory and applications
  • Continuation theory and applications
  • Critical point theory, variational methods and applications
  • Integral, differential and partial differential equations and applications
  • Dynamical system theory and applications
  • Fractal operator theory and applications
  • Operator equations and inclusions
  • Geometry of the Banach spaces
  • Optimization problems and applications
  • Equilibrium problems, game theory and applications
  • Mathematical modeling via fixed point theory approaches
