Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Focus of this Special Issue is to collect original and/or review papers, dealing with nonlinear and/or non-equilibrium statistical systems, which play a central role in modern statistical physics.

The subjects of the volume may include, but are not limited to, the following areas: Foundations and mathematical formalism and theoretical aspects of classical and quantum statistical mechanics; non-linear methods and generalized statistical mechanics; information geometry and its connection to statistical mechanics; non-equilibrium statistical physics; mathematical methods of kinetic theory; Boltzmann and Fokker–Planck kinetics; dynamical systems; chaotic systems; and fractal systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
