The history of entropy is a wonderful combination of physical, probabilistic, and geometrical ideas. Chemical and biological problems and modern data analysis further enrich this beautiful combination. This issue has an ambitious goal: To collect highly interdisciplinary papers that combine more than one subject and are related to geometric, statistical, and physical ideas of entropy. Geometric ideas in thermodynamics, statistical physics, and kinetics, geometry of data analytics in high dimensions, ideas of statistical physics in geometry, and mathematical backgrounds of all these approaches are very welcome. We are looking for new ideas and methods to support emerging and fast developing areas, like Artificial Intelligence and Smart Materials, and for solutions to classical problems such as efficient model reduction in kinetic systems. We also encourage authors to supplement articles with real-world applications whenever possible.

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.
