Pure Mathematics and Applications - section Algebra and Theoretical Computer Science - publishes original high quality articles of international relevance in the two disciplines of algebra and theoretical computer science. Specific topics include (but are not limited to) group and semigroup theory, commutative algebra, computational algebra, poset and lattice theory, linear algebra, theory of automata and formal languages, computational complexity, analysis of algorithms, game theory. In particular, articles in which interactions between algebra and theoretical computer science play a relevant role (i.e. techniques of either discipline are fundamental in obtaining results of the other) will be privileged. As a natural consequence of this fact, one of the disciplines which are more relevant to the journal is discrete mathematics, and more specifically enumerative and algebraic combinatorics, graph theory, discrete tomography, random and exhaustive generation, combinatorial order theory, bioinformatics, matroid theory, combinatorics on words. Papers about high quality applications of combinatorial methods to computer science (especially algorithms, data structures, and criptography), or special issues, completely devoted to a certain contemporary topic of high interest, are also published.
Pure Mathematics and Applications - section Mathematics of Optimization - publishes original research works, surveys, historical and biographical articles primarily on mathematics of optimization. Papers about high quality applications of mathematical methods to decision sciences (especially operations research, economics, games and control theory, actuarial and financial mathematics), or special issues, completely devoted to a certain contemporary topic of high interest are also published.
The editorial board is participating in a growing community of Similarity Check System's users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. Similarity Check is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.
Each paper will be thoroughly refereed by one or two international referees. The submitted paper has to:
be in pdf format;
be written in English using the standard LaTeX2e class article.cls;
possibly be without footnotes;
contain in the first page the title, the authors and their addresses;
have an abstract with at most 100 words;
have the form of the references expressed in the style of Mathematical Review.
To assist the referees, a copy of any unpublished reference should be attached.
Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts accepted for publication in LaTeX. The source file must not contain user-defined commands! Figures must be attached in postscript format.
It is a fundamental condition for publication that submitted manuscripts have not been published, nor will be simultaneously submitted or published elsewhere. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the copyright for their article is transferred to the publisher if and when the article is accepted for publication.
