Nonadditive and nonextensive statistical mechanics - some mathematical aspects

The nonadditive entropy formula3 and its associated statistical mechanics pose various mathematically interesting challenges. Some selected ones will be presented.

In addition to this, some recent predictions, verifications and applications in natural and artificial systems will be briefly described as well.
