About the Journal


Aims and Scope

The main objective of the journal MathematicS in Action is to promote the interactions between Mathematics and other sciences by publishing papers at their interfaces written by at least two authors: a mathematician and a specialist in another scientific community (biology, medicine, economy, computer science, physics, chemistry, mechanics, environnemental sciences, engineering sciences, etc.).

The papers deal with modelling, analysis and validation of models, numerical methods and/or experimental methods. They must comprise a mathematical part and either numerical or experimental results. They also must be useful and globally accessible to their authors' scientific communities.



MathematicS in Action publishes 1 issue per year.
