Complex network theory has been widely applied in the fields of biology, physics, business, economics, language, transportation, etc. Fruitful research results have been achieved. Early research based on the basic assumptions about pairwise interactions, homogeneity relation, and path-memoryless is not able to capture the important information of complex relations in the real world, such as multiplicity, heterogeneity, and temporal sequences. Recently, more and more works have further considered the rationality of these basic assumptions and some new findings have emerged. This Special Issue focuses on Complex Networks and emphasizes their applications, especially those considering complex relations with properties of multiplicity, heterogeneity, and temporal sequences.

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 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.
