Advances on Generalized Convexity, Monotonicity and Optimization Methods

The special issue addresses core topics and recent results on generalized convexity, generalized monotonicity, variational analysis, optimization methods for nonconvex programming, and related applications on topics including, but not limited to, economics, regulated markets, performance measurement and bilevel programming.

Topics may also include new methods and applications of existing techniques in those application areas if those are supplemented by a thorough theoretical
analysis. The special issue may also contain state of the art results presented at the “14th International Symposium on Generalized Convexity and Monotonicity” held at the University of Pisa, Italy, September 2-6, 2024.

Optimization is abstracted and indexed also in: Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet; Science Citation Index Expanded; Zentralblatt MATH/Mathematics Abstracts.

Submitted papers will be considered as potential full-paper publications in this special issue subject to peer reviews and should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be refereed upholding the journal’s high standards of peer-review integrity and scientific good practice. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent, anonymous expert referees, each delivering at least one report. The main criteria for acceptance are the quality and originality of the contribution.
