Interests: nonlinear dynamics; fractional calculus; modeling; control; evolutionary computing; genomics; robotics; and intelligent transportation systems
Complex systems are pervasive in many area of science and we find them everyday and everywhere. Examples include financial markets, highway transportation networks, telecommunication networks, world and country economies, social networks, immunological systems, living organisms, computational systems and electrical and mechanical structures. Complex systems are often composed of large number of interconnected and interacting entities exhibiting much richer global scale dynamics than they could be inferred from the properties and behaviour of individual entities. Complex systems are studied in many areas of natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and mathematical sciences.
The special issue focus on original and new research results on systems dynamics in science and engineering. Manuscripts in complex dynamical systems, nonlinearity, chaos and fractional dynamics in the thermodynamics or information processing perspectives are solicited. We welcome submissions addressing novel issues as well as those on more specific topics illustrating the broad impact of entropy-based techniques in complexity, nonlinearity and fractionality.
Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Complex dynamics
- Nonlinear dynamical systems
- Advanced control systems
- Fractional calculus and its applications
- Chemical dynamics
- Economical dynamics and predictions
- Dynamical systems synchronization
- Biological systems and bioinformatics
- Nonlinear waves and acoustics
- Image and signal processing
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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
