The use of heuristic and meta-heuristic algorithms in an artificial way helps effectively solve many challenging real- world problems. In comparison to mathematical models and combinatorial optimization techniques, these algorithms are efficient in terms of the computational times. However, the development of computational technology and artificial intelligence techniques made it possible to get the optimal solutions to many challenging problems. This has triggered the development of new mathematical methods and algorithms, aiding to solve some of the most complicated and hard problems in various engineering fields.

This special issue aims to present new trends in mathematical methods and intelligent algorithms with an emphasis on applied sciences. The topics of the special issue include, but are not limited to:
• Linear and nonlinear programming
• New heuristic and meta-heuristic algorithms
• Multi-objective optimization
• Optimization and control
• Engineering applications of artificial intelligence
• Combinatorial optimization
• Industrial applications of new optimization methods
• Energy systems modelling and optimization
• Fractional calculus and its applications
• Population dynamics and conservation biology
• Mathematical biology
• Stability analysis of systems
