Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a chemist, I have been trying very hard to set up an axiomatic formula of symmetry, order, entropy and stability. The task is truly very big and my efforts stirred up more problems than it appeared to have solved. This is the main reason that I am motivated to launch the journals Entropy (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy/), Symmetry (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/symmetry/) together with several scientists, see the editorials at http://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/1/1/1/pdf/ and http://www.mdpi.com/2073-8994/1/1/1/pdf/. I sincerely welcome you to contribute your paper and bring some progress to the studies of this topic.
