Complexity and complex systems emerge in natural, artificial, and social contexts, and have attracted strong and enthusiastic scientific attention all over the world during the last decades. The study of these fascinating systems focuses on concepts of emergent behavior, living organisms, languages, earthquakes, economics, ecology, social networks, and other fundamental problems of contemporary science and societies. Most of these systems are out-of-equilibrium and present weak chaos, long-range correlations, nonergodic behavior, multifractal hierarchical structures, for which standard equilibrium Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics is not applicable. In the last few decades, a large variety of complex systems, in various fields, has been successfully described using nonextensive generalized formalisms of statistical mechanics.
The aim of the present Special Issue is to solicit original and interdisciplinary contributions which cover new developments and original applications of generalized statistical mechanics to complex systems of various natures.Prof. Dr. Andrea Rapisarda

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. Entropy 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 1600 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.
