Iterative Methods and Optimization Algorithms: A Dedication to Dr. Hong-Kun Xu

Fixed Point Theory and Applications welcomes submissions to the thematic series "Iterative Methods and Optimization Algorithms: A Dedication to Dr. Hong-Kun Xu."

The thematic series Iterative Methods and Optimization Algorithms is devoted to the latest achievements in the field of iterative methods and optimization theory for single-valued and multi-valued mappings. The series is related to the significant contributions in these fields of Professor Hong-Kun Xu, as well as to some important recent advances in theory, computation, and applications.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Iterative methods for nonlinear equations
  • Fixed point and coincidence point problems
  • Inverse and ill-posed problems
  • Differential and integral equations and inclusions
  • Optimization algorithms
  • Related problems in nonlinear and variational analysis
