Special Issue "Direct and Inverse Problems for Fractional Differential Equations"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Interests: fractional derivative; distributed derivative; fractional differential equation; initial value problem; boundary value problem; inverse problem; identification problem; existence and uniqueness of solution; group analysis
Fractional integro-differential calculus in general, and fractional differential equations in particular, are becoming an increasingly important tool for mathematical modeling, and, accordingly, are of increasing interest to researchers. Fractional differential equations have their own specifics, and at the same time, many of their properties are similar to the properties of differential equations of integer orders that are similar in form.
The aim of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of articles reflecting the latest developments in the theory of fractional differential equations, unique solvability issues for initial value problems to differential equations with fractional derivatives in Banach spaces, for initial boundary value problems to fractional order partial differential equations, for inverse coefficient problems to such equations, and so on. The various qualitative properties of fractional differential equations, the search for exact solutions, and group analyses for fractional differential equations are also of interest to this Special Issue.

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.
