Complex systems are pervasive in many areas of science and we find them every day and everywhere. Examples include financial markets, highway transportation networks, telecommunication networks, world and national economies, social networks, immunological systems, living organisms, computational systems and electrical and mechanical structures. Complex systems are often composed of large numbers of interconnected and interacting entities that exhibit much richer global scale dynamics than can be inferred from the properties and behaviors of individual entities. Complex systems are studied in many areas of the natural sciences, social sciences, and engineering and mathematical sciences.
This Special Issue focuses on original and new research results concerning systems dynamics in science and engineering. Manuscripts discussing complex dynamical systems, nonlinearity, chaos, and fractional dynamics in the thermodynamics or information processing perspectives are solicited. We welcome submissions addressing novel issues as well as those addressing more specific topics that illustrate the broad impact of entropy-based techniques in complexity, nonlinearity, and fractionality.
Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Nonlinear dynamical systems
Advanced control systems
Fractional calculus and its applications
Economical dynamics and predictions
Dynamical systems synchronization
Biological systems and bioinformatics
Nonlinear waves and acoustics
Image and signal processing

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 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.
