Numerical Algebra, Control and Optimization (NACO) is an international journal devoted to publishing peer-refereed high quality original papers on any non-trivial interplay between numerical linear algebra, control and optimization. These three areas are closely related and complementary. The developments of many fundamentally important theories and methods in optimization and control are based on numerical linear algebra. Efficient implementation of algorithms in optimization and control also provides new theoretical challenges in numerical linear algebra. Furthermore, optimization theory and methods are widely used in control theory, especially for solving practical control problems. On the other hand, control problems often initiate new theory, techniques and methods to be developed in optimization.

The main objective of NACO is to provide a single forum for and promote collaboration between researchers and practitioners in these areas. Significant practical and theoretical problems in one area can be addressed by the use of appropriate recent advanced theory techniques and methods from the other two areas leading to the discovery of new ideas and the development of novel methodologies in numerical algebra, control and optimization.

The journal adheres to the publication ethics and malpractice policies outlined by COPE.
