Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present a new Special Issue in Axioms, entitled “Stochastic Processes in Quantum Mechanics and Classical Physics”.

Stochastic processes, by their nature, can represent an intriguing way to describe a wide range of phenomena. In fact, with stochastic modelling it is possible to give answers to old problems and to offer innovative statements in the current research framework. The first attempts to apply the stochastic theory happened long ago. Today, we have at our disposal powerful mathematical tools suitable for solving a wide variety of applied problems, and this increasingly inspires the interests of mathematicians, physicists and engineers.

The aim of the Special Issue is to publish original research papers and critical reviews that contribute new insights into the development and diffusion of stochastic modelling arising from quantum mechanics and classical physics.

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Quantum mechanics;
  • Quantum statistics;
  • Quantum field theory;
  • Quantum electrodynamics;
  • Electromagnetism;
  • Thermodynamics;
  • Statistical mechanics.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Axioms 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Abstract
Experimental results of delay-time measurements in the transfer of modulation between microwave beams, as reported in previous articles, were interpreted on a competition (interference) between two waves, one of which is modulated and the other is a continuous wave (c.w.).

Experimental results of delay-time measurements in the transfer of modulation between microwave beams, as reported in previous articles, were interpreted on a competition (interference) between two waves, one of which is modulated and the other is a continuous wave (c.w.). The creation of one of these waves was attributed to a saddle-point contribution, while the other was attributed to pole singularities. In this paper, such an assumption is justified by a quantitative field-amplitude analysis in order to make the modeling plausible. In particular, two ways of calculating field amplitudes are considered. These lead to results that are quantitatively markedly different, although qualitatively similar. Full article

Abstract
We consider five types of entropies for Gaussian distribution: Shannon, Rényi, generalized Rényi, Tsallis and Sharma–Mittal entropy, establishing their interrelations and their properties as the functions of parameters. Then, we consider fractional Gaussian processes, namely fractional, subfractional, bifractional, multifractional and tempered fractional Brownian [...] Read more.

Then, we consider fractional Gaussian processes, namely fractional, subfractional, bifractional, multifractional and tempered fractional Brownian motions, and compare the entropies of one-dimensional distributions of these processes.
