Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This issue is a continuation of the previous successful Special Issue “Advances in Differential and Difference Equations with Applications 2020”.

It is very well known that differential and difference equations are extreme representations of complex dynamical systems.

During the last few years, the theory of fractional differentiation has been successfully applied to the study of anomalous social and physical behaviors, where scaling power law of fractional order appears universal as an empirical description of such complex phenomena. Recently, the difference counterpart of fractional calculus has started to be intensively used for a better characterization of some real-world phenomena. Systems of delay differential equations have started to occupy a central place of importance in various areas of science, particularly in biological areas.

This Special Issue deals with the theory and application of differential and difference equations, especially in science and engineering, and will accept high-quality papers having original research results.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring mathematicians together with physicists, engineers, as well as other scientists, for whom differential and difference equations are valuable research tools.

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. Mathematics 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 1200 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.
