Announcement: "Advances in Difference Equations" to become "Advances in Continuous and Discrete Models"

Springer Nature is happy to announce a new chapter for Advances in Difference Equations. Starting July 1st, the journal will be transitioning to a new title that opens the scope of the journal to broader developments in theory and applications of models. Under the new title, Advances in Continuous and Discrete Models: Theory and Modern Applications, the journal will cover developments in machine learning, data driven modeling, differential equations, numerical analysis, scientific computing, control, optimization, and computing. The journal will also be led by three new Editors-in-Chief: Prof. Harbir Antil (George Mason University, Virginia), Prof. Xue-Cheng Tai (Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong), and Prof. Enrique Zuazua (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany). Due to this transition, all new submissions received after 1st July will be considered for Advances in Continuous and Discrete Models, which will publish articles starting from 1 January 2022. Meanwhile, Advances in Difference Equations will be completing its last volume under the original aims & scope this year (2021).

Aims and scope

Computational and applied mathematics along with data science play a vital role in contemporary society by driving innovation. This success can be attributed to revolutionary theoretical and algorithmic developments in machine learning, data driven modeling, differential equations, numerical analysis, scientific computing, control, optimization, and computing resources together with new tools to deal with uncertainty and randomness.

This journal encourages new research in these broad areas. In addition to research on algorithmic and analytical developments, the journal also encourages papers related to (but not limited to) broad applications in Signal and Image Processing, Computer Vision, Materials Science, Mathematical Biology and Bioengineering. As a result, the journal will be an excellent connecting bridge between mathematical research and real world applications. 

The journal accepts high-quality articles containing original research results and survey articles of exceptional merit.

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
