In the past, several results involving fractional order operators have been reported both in theory and applications, covering different fields such as modelling, identification, estimation, control and signal processing, among others. The interest in using fractional order tools has increased rapidly over the last few decades, with solid results being obtained for the study of fractional order systems and signals from transient behavior, stability, convergence and boundedness viewpoints, allowing a comparison of these techniques with those based on integer order derivative and integral operators, expanding the horizons on these topics.
The present Special Issue is devoted to new theories and applications, making use of fractional order operators and comparisons with their integer order counterparts. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Fractional order control (adaptive and non-adaptive). Theory and practice.
- Fractional order sliding mode control and applications.
- Stability of fractional order differential equations and systems.
- Fractional order observers and estimators.
- Back-stepping fractional order control (adaptive and non-adaptive systems).
- Fractional integrals and derivatives and their applications.
- Fractional order signal processing.
- Fractional order passivity and applications.
- Conformable fractional calculus.
- New definitions of fractional derivatives.
- Applications of fractional calculus.
- Fractional order stochastic systems and controls.
- Fractional order modelling of physical systems.

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. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
