This issue consists of 16 carefully refereed papers dealing with mathematical
modeling, numerical analysis, numerical simulation and mathematical analysis
for ordinary/partial differential equations in several fields: fluid dynamics,
chemistry, crystal physics, material science, medical science and biology.
The authors in the present issue are mainly from Czech Republic, Slovakia and Japan. Scientific and mathematical exchanges began in 2004 among the authors and their friends. Since then, fruitful relationships and effective exchanges have been promoted and developed.
Professor Tatsuyuki Nakaki strongly supported these exchanges and established the Czech-Slovak-Japanese joint seminars on industrial and applied mathematics.
Unfortunately, he passed away in 2011.
In 2013 in Tokyo, we had an opportunity to have a meeting in honor of Professor Nakaki.
Recent topics in industrial and applied mathematics were widely discussed and
we could exchange new ideas and various kinds of new problems.
The present issue includes a part of those results.
Finally we would like to thank the referees for their valuable comments in reviewing the papers.
