Special Issue "Entropy, Nonlinear Dynamics and Complexity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
Concepts such as ‘entropy’ or ‘complexity’ have been approached from many different angles in physics, mathematics, computer science and beyond. The interdisciplinary arena spanned by these concepts inherits ideas and tools from nonlinear dynamics (e.g. Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy, Renyi entropies), information theory (Shannon entropy, statistical complexity), statistical physics (Boltzmann entropy, Tsallis entropy), or network science (graph entropy), and make use of these to describe and understand the behaviour of complex systems in an amazingly wide range of contexts.
The aim of this Special Issue is to encourage researchers to present original and recent developments on topics closely related to entropy and complexity that emerge (typically) in nonlinear dynamical systems and related complex systems. The type of contributions can be theoretical or applied: they can address a particular fundamental open problem where the authors push forward the state of the art or can represent sensible examples that make efficient use of these tools in different contexts across physics, biology, economics or the computational social sciences, among others.
I look forward to reading your submissions.
Prof. Dr. Lucas Lacasa
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.
