Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this issue is to provide an overview of the latest challenges and achievements in the domain of the application of quantum models in a wide range of sciences, including but not limited to cognitive psychology, behavioral economics, biology, and artificial intelligence.

While being perfectly linear, quantum probabilistic models naturally cover such unorthodox phenomena as the question-order effect, conjunction and disjunction effects, positive or negative interference, update on zero prior, etc. At the same time, in certain aspects quantum models may be more restrictive than classical ones.

Variability and randomness are of a different nature in classical and quantum models. 

There are known cases when quantum model research in cognitive psychology stimulated research in quantum physics, in particular, on the problem of combining the question-order effect and response replicability.

How exactly the electrochemical processes in the brain lead to specific rumination outcomes is an immensely difficult "micro-macro" problem. Potentially, we can analyze the relative success of the different learning techniques to better understand what is going on in the mysterious black box of the intellect, artificial or human.

We hope that this issue will advance awareness and stimulate further development of the quantum model applications to decision-making under uncertainty.

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. 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 1800 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.
