Special Issue "Advances in Nonlinear Dynamical Systems and Control"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 3228
One of the main purposes of research in nonlinear control systems is to design various types of control techniques for the various nonlinear control models arising in real-world applications. Nonlinear control systems are often governed by nonlinear differential equations. A special type of nonlinear dynamical system is the family of chaotic systems, which are highly sensitive to changes in their initial conditions. Backstepping control, adaptive control, sliding mode control, fuzzy logic control, and fuzzy-based sliding mode control are some of the popular techniques used in the nonlinear control theory. Various mathematical techniques have been developed for analyzing the nonlinear differential equations such as Lyapunov stability theory, limit cycle theory, Poincaré maps, bifurcation theory, chaos theory, and describing functions.
Fractional-order differential equations and control systems have been also paid much attention to in the control literature. A fractional-order system is a dynamical system that can be modeled by a fractional differential equation containing derivatives of non-integer order. Fractional-order systems are highly useful in analyzing the anomalous behavior of nonlinear dynamical systems arising in physics, biology, electrochemistry, memristors, and chaotic systems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
