Proceedings of the International Conference on Analysis and Applications

Advances in Difference Equations welcomes submissions to the new thematic series of the 'Proceedings of the International Conference on Analysis and Applications'. An International Conference on Analysis and Applications was held at Kirsehir, Turkey during July 12-15, 2016. Beside 7 plenary talks and 5 invited speakers, more than 240 papers were presented on different topics in Analysis, including Approximation by Linear and Nonlinear Operators, Fixed Point Theory and its Applications, Applications in Differential Equations and Partial Differential equations, Fourier, Wavelet and Harmonic Analysis Methods in Function Spaces, Variational Analysis including Variational Inequalities, Optimization and Applications, Convex Analysis and Applications, Spectral Theory and Differential Operators, Geometry of Banach Spaces, Modern methods in Summability and Approximation, Sequence Spaces and Matrix Transformations, etc. Most of the talks by plenary speakers and invited speakers reflect both the state-of-the-art in abstract research as well as in applications. We shall include papers which lie under the scope of Advances in Difference Equations. We shall also invite other researchers, who could not participate due to one or other reason, to contribute their papers in this special issue.

One of the most dynamic area of research of the last 50 years, fixed point theory plays a fundamental role in several theoretical and applicative areas, such as nonlinear analysis, integral and differential equations and inclusions, dynamical system theory, mathematics of fractals, mathematical economics (game theory, equilibrium problems, optimization problems), mathematical modeling. This special issue will propose relevant works related to the theory of fixed points and its various applications to pure, applied and computational mathematics. A 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. 

 The potential topics include, but are not limited to the following scopes:

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 fixed 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
  • Integral, differential and partial differential inclusions 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 application
  • Mathematical modeling via fixed point theory approaches
