Mathematical Programming publishes original articles dealing with every aspect of mathematical optimization; that is, everything of direct or indirect use concerning the problem of optimizing a function of many variables, often subject to a set of constraints. This involves theoretical and computational issues as well as application studies. Included, along with the standard topics of linear, nonlinear, integer, conic, stochastic and combinatorial optimization, are techniques for formulating and applying mathematical programming models, convex, nonsmooth and variational analysis, the theory of polyhedra, variational inequalities, and control and game theory viewed from the perspective of mathematical programming. The editorial boards are particularly interested in novel applications of mathematical programming and interfaces with engineering, economics, and computer science. Articles primarily concerned with computational issues such as implementation and testing should in general be submitted to Mathematical Programming Computation.
Mathematical Programming consists of two series. Series A publishes original research articles, expositions and
