Special Issue "New Achievements on Chaos, Turbulence and Complexity in Heliospheric Space Plasma Dynamics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 October 2020.
Interests: complexity in space plasmas; dynamical systems and information theory approaches to Sun-Earth relationships and Earth’s magnetospheric dynamics
Interests: nonlinear dynamics and chaos; time series analysis; turbulence and complexity; solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere dynamics; climate variability
Interests: solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere dynamics, turbulence and complexity in circumterrestrial environments
Over the past three decades it has been realized that improving the understanding of the dynamics of space plasmas requires to explore novel approaches borrowed from dynamical systems’ approaches. Numerous studies have clearly shown how dynamical complexity, chaos, turbulence are all physical processes which play a central role in the heliospheric space plasma dynamics. On the other hand, in the framework of dynamical systems several new tools and methods have been proposed to quantify and characterize the dynamical complexity and its role in the nonlinear out-of-equilibrium dynamical systems.
This Special Issue will focus on the new achievements in the role that dynamical complexity, turbulence and chaos perform on the energy, mass and momentum transfer in the framework of heliospheric space plasmas and Sun-Earth relations using nontraditional methods based on information theory and entropic measures.
In particular, papers presenting the potentiality of entropy and information theoretic concepts in unveiling and exploring the complex dynamics of these space plasma medium at different spatial and temporal scales are welcome.

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.
