Peer Review Process
The reviewing process is simple anonymous, that is the reviewers are kept anonymous while the authors are not. The authors are asked to provide the names of one or two potential associate editors who will manage their article. Then, the editor in chief assigns the article to an associate editor who seeks reviewer(s). Once the reviews are available, the associate editor reports his decision to the whole editorial board which takes the final decision regarding the acceptance of the article.
Open Access Policy
The NorthWestern European Journal of Mathematics adheres to the principles of Fair Open Access, and is a member of the Free Journal Network. No charges are levied on authors. Articles are freely available to anyone as soon they are accepted. Hard copies of a volume are available at the cost of the paper and delivery.
Copyright Notice
Authors keep their copyrights. Thus they can reuse figures, article parts or any material they need for subsequent work. The contract license is the Creative Commons License CCBY which is the most flexible contract maximising the readership on publication.
Author Guidelines
Articles submission:
 At the initial stage, the authors have only to send by mail a PDF file to the managing editor (philippe.heinrichNOSPAMATunivlille.fr).
 Only when the article is accepted or subject to minor revisions are they asked to ensure it complies with the journal format. Here you can find an example of a LaTeX and a biblatex file. The template and the documentation in French and also in English.
 After acceptance, the '.tex', '.bib' and '.pdf' files in the journal format should be sent by mail to the managing editor as well (philippe.heinrichNOSPAMATunivlille.fr).
LaTeX details:
 LaTeX class: We strongly encourage the authors to prepare their article to appear in the NWEJM journal with the dedicated `nwejmart' LaTeX class, available with up to date MiKTeX and TeX Live distributions.
 Incompatibilities:
 Our production system is not compatible with the `xypic' bundle. For commutative diagramms, please use instead the userfriendly and modern `tikzcd' package.
 We much more prefer graphics not created with `PSTricks' and derived. Consider using `PGF'/`TikZ' or derived packages. In case you really need one of these packages, please contact us.
 Bibliography: The bibliography must be provided as a `.bib' file in the format of the `biblatex' package.
 Figures: The figures must be provided in PDF or EPS formats.
Current Volume:
The current volume is the volume of 2024.

We provide in this paper the hamiltonian delay equations of motion for the newtonian nbody problem deduced from the quantum calculus of variations developed in Cresson 2005; Cresson, Frederico, and Torres 2009; Ryckelynck and Smoch 2013, 2014. These equations are brought into the usual lagrangian and hamiltonian formulations of the dynamics and yield sampled functional equations involving generalized derivatives. We investigate especially homographic solutions to these equations that we obtain by solving algebraic systems of equations similar to the classical ones. When the potential forces are homogeneous, homographic solutions to the delayed and to the classical equations may be related through an explicit expansion factor that we provide. Consequently, perturbative equations both in lagrangian and hamiltonian formalisms are deduced.

Ebert's hat problem with two colors and equal probabilities has, remarkable, the same optimal winning probability for three and four players. This paper studies Ebert's hat problem for three and four players, where the probabilities of the two colors may be different for each player. Our goal is to maximize the probability of winning the game and to describe winning strategies. We obtain different results for games with three and four players. We use the concept of an adequate set. The construction of adequate sets is independent of underlying probabilities and we can use this fact in the analysis of our general case. The computational complexity of the adequate set method is dramatically lower than by standard methods.
