This Special Issue is devoted to the intense activity currently going on concerning the properties and the applications of nonlinear partial differential equations, classical and quantal, that are closely related to nonstandard entropic functionals, such as the Tsallis and Renyi entropies. This research extends and generalizes some fundamental aspects of important partial differential equations of applied mathematics and of mathematical physics, such as the linear diffusion and Fokker-Planck equations, that are closely linked to the standard, logarithmic Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon-Jaynes entropic measure. These kind of connections can be extended to the realm of nonlinear partial differential equations, via the aforementioned generalized entropic functionals. This Special Issue looks for new developments and/or new results, in both classical and quantum realms, regarding the connection between nonstandard entropies and nonlinear partial differential equations.

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.
