Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of nonlinear circuits and systems and the associated mathematical modeling is a topic of continuous research interest due to its highly interdisciplinary nature. The development of novel nonlinear circuit theoretical concepts has led to the development of many new applications in neuromorphic computing, power electronics and energy conversion, energy harvesting, cryptography, biomedical systems, and chaos control.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original research articles, as well as review articles, on the most recent developments and innovations in this field, with specific focus on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary applied research.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Applications of nonlinear theory in energy conversion and power electronics;
  • Applications of nonlinear networks in control systems;
  • Applications of nonlinear systems in chaos, complexity, and optimization;
  • Applications of nonlinear systems in telecommunications and information theory;
  • Applications of nonlinear systems in cryptography and cybersecurity;
  • Applications of nonlinear systems in neuromorphic computing, biology/biomedicine, and computational bioinformatics;
  • Innovative applications of nonlinear circuit theory.

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 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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
