MCRF Flyer: showing all essential information of the journal.
Mathematical Control and Related Fields (MCRF) aims to publish original research as well as expository papers on mathematical control theory and related fields. The goal is to provide a complete and reliable source of mathematical methods and results in this field. The journal will also accept papers from some related fields such as differential equations, functional analysis, probability theory and stochastic analysis, inverse problems, optimization, numerical analysis and scientific computation, machine learning, data sciences, mathematical finance, information theory, game theory, system theory, and various applications, provided that they have some intrinsic connections with control theory.
