Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Manuscripts regarding supersymmetry and related fields are invited for this special issue of Symmetry. For decades, supersymmetry (SUSY) has provided an elegant candidate for physics beyond the standard model. However, experimental confirmation of supersymmetric models remains elusive, despite high hopes that many had placed, for example, in experiments conducted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Therefore, the current moment can be seen as an interesting juncture for the study of SUSY. Additionally, supersymmetry has proven important beyond its application to particle physics; other important topics include supersymmetric quantum mechanics and mathematical studies of supersymmetry.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 500 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
