Special Matrices: Special Issue dedicated to the 8th Linear Algebra Workshop (LAW'17)

Linear algebra is a very interesting branch of mathematics that has gained in popularity lately. Since many problems are easy to state, it is attracting people of different backgrounds, although their motivation to work in the area may differ a lot. It is our intention to bring together people whose motivation for linear algebra comes primarily from problems in statistics, operator theory and algebra, but are willing to learn (or are already familiar with) deeper concepts from either field that may help solve them.

This Special Issue is dedicated to the 8th Linear Algebra Workshop (LAW'17) which takes place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 12-16, 2017.

The main theme of the 8th Linear Algebra Workshop will be the interplay between operator theory and algebra. The Workshop will be held at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana. Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia, a small country in central south eastern Europe. Those interested in attending should register by May 15, 2017. More information can be found at www.law05.si/law17.

The organizers encourage submitting original papers and survey papers related to the themes of the Workshop. All contributions will be peer reviewed and upon acceptance published in a topical issue in Special Matrices. The Editorial Board for the topical issue is the Scientific Committee of the Workshop.
