Research in the Mathematical Sciences is an international, peer-reviewed hybrid journal covering the full scope of Theoretical Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Theoretical Computer Science. The Mission of the Journal will be to publish high-quality original articles that make a significant contribution to the research areas of both theoretical and applied mathematics and theoretical computer science.

This journal is an efficient enterprise where the editors play a central role in soliciting the best research papers, and where editorial decisions are reached in a timely fashion. Research in the Mathematical Sciences does not have a length restriction and encourages the submission of longer articles in which more complex and detailed analysis and proofing of theorems is required. It also publishes shorter research communications (Letters) covering nascent research in some of the hottest areas of mathematical research. This journal will publish the highest quality papers in all of the traditional areas of applied and theoretical areas of mathematics and computer science, and it will actively seek to publish seminal papers in the most emerging and interdisciplinary areas in all of the mathematical sciences. Research in the Mathematical Sciences wishes to lead the way by promoting the highest quality research of this type.

  • 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.

  • Transmission Eigenvalues and Related Spectral Problems in Scattering Theory (Submission Deadline: April 30, 2021)

    This special issue will feature recent developments in the theory and applications of transmission eigenvalues and related spectral problems in direct and inverse scattering theory. The transmission eigenvalue problem is at the heart of inverse scattering theory for inhomogeneous media. It has a deceptively simple formulation but presents a perplexing mathematical structure; in particular it is a non-self-adjoint eigenvalue problem. This subject is rich, active and in the past decade has taken a multitude of directions, including developments in the spectral theory for various operators related to scattering, as well as many applications in inverse scattering problems and imaging. We solicit high quality original research papers targeting results on the theory, computations and applications of these topics.

    Guest Editor: Fioralba Cakoni, Rutgers University and Houssem Haddar, CMAP Ecole Polytechnique

    Submission Deadline: April 30, 2021
