Special Issue "Entropy Production and Its Applications: From Cosmology to Biology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2019).

1. Institute of Industrial Ecology, S. Kovalevskaya str. 20, Ekaterinburg, 620219, Russia;
2. Ural Federal University, Mira str.19, Ekaterinburg 620002, Russia
Interests: fundamental problems of nature (irreversibility, asymmetry and scale of time, evolution, etc.); non-equilibrium thermodynamics; the second law of thermodynamics and entropy; maximum entropy production in physics, chemistry and biology; growth processes in nature (experiment, theory, simulation); morphological stability (crystal growth and fluid flow); pattern formation (dendrites, viscous fingers, etc.)
Entropy production is the most important quantity that integrally characterizes the degree of nonequilibrium of any process in nature. The properties of this quantity and its applications have been described earlier in numerous articles. Many of these works (for example, those written by Ilya Prigogine and Hans Ziegler) are of great importance for the development of science and our worldview.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original articles and reviews with the most recent and interesting ideas about entropy production and its applications.
I cordially invite researchers to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue.

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.
