Call for Papers
Special issue: European Journal of Applied Mathematics (EJAM)
Applied Optimal Transport
A forthcoming special issue of the European Journal of Applied Mathematics will feature research articles that involve the applied side of the theory of optimal transportation: numerical methods, modeling, applications to PDEs, image processing, optics, fluid mechanics, population dynamics, traffic, economics and other social or natural sciences. As a non-exhaustive list of topics where optimal transport techniques have been usefully employed in the last years we mention, for instance, the theory of Mean Field Games, the study of some PDEs in mathematical biology (chemotaxis. . . ), or in mathematical physics such as the incompressible Euler equation, the modeling of crowd-motion phenomena, the mathematical and numerical analysis of reflector antenna problems, and the robust pricing of financial derivatives (martingale optimal transport). . . Researchers working in this wide field are invited to submit high-quality papers with their collaborators to this special issue. The peer review of submissions will be in accordance with EJAM’s mission to focus on mathematical models inspired by real-world applications, while at the same time fostering the development of theoretical methods with broad applicability.
The guest editors for this special issue will be Guillaume Carlier (Paris-Dauphine), Daniel Matthes (TUM) and Filippo Santambrogio (Paris-Sud), with assistance from Martin Burger (Mu¨n- ster, EJAM co-editor in chief).
Papers are due no later than January 31st, 2018. Authors should lodge submissions via the online website for EJAM, noting in a covering letter that their paper is for consideration for this special issue. Publication of the special issue is expected to be in late 2018 or early 2019.
Enquires can be directed to either Guillaume Carlier (email@example.com), Daniel Matthes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Filippo Santambrogio (email@example.com).
