A journal can’t run—or at least, not run smoothly—without the help of its Editorial Board. Now, the Editors of Fixed Point Theory and Applications have chosen to thank their Editorial Board members by spotlighting one each quarter.
To honor Professor Xu’s contributions to Fixed Point Theory and Applications, the journal has launched a Thematic Series in his honor, titled, “Iterative Methods and Optimization Algorithms.”
This quarter’s spotlight shines on Hong-Kun Xu, of Hangzhou Dianzi University in Hangzhou, China. Professor Xu’s career has taken him around the world, to Dalhousie University in Canada, King Saud University, the University of Seville, the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, and back again to Asia, where he’s taught at the National Sun Yat-Sen University, the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and finally (so far) to Hangzhou Dianzi University.
He’s also won several awards, including the 2004 South African Mathematical Society Research Distinction. He was elected fellow to the Academy of Science of South Africa in 2005 and to TWAS, the World Academy of Sciences, in 2012. He has been Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher since 2013. He currently serves editorial boards of over 20 international mathematical journals and has refereed for nearly 100 mathematical and engineering journals.
To honor Professor Xu’s contributions to Fixed Point Theory and Applications, the journal has launched a Thematic Series in his honor, titled, “Iterative Methods and Optimization Algorithms,” guest-edited by Adrian Petrusel, Ravi Agarwal, and Juan Nieto. Deadline for submission is December 31, 2017, and all the details are here. 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.
