Special Issue Information
The role of mathematical modeling in theoretical and applied scientific development is crucial. This discipline covers almost all areas of knowledge, providing models that simulate different phenomena and behaviors of all types. Nowadays, one of the most important problems that our society is facing is to guarantee the security of citizens and infrastructures against intentional or non-intentional threats. This refers not only to physical assets but also to those of logical nature.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to gather high-quality research papers and reviews focused on the design, analysis, and development of mathematical models with applications in the field of security, defense, cyber security, and cyber defense. Specifically, this Special Issue will cover different perspectives on these and related potential topics:
- Mathematical modeling in security and defense.
- Mathematical modeling in cyber security and cyber defense.
- Complex networks analysis in security and defense.
- Complex network analysis applied to cyber security.
- Mathematical modeling of biological agents and malware propagation.
- Mathematical models for critical infrastructure protection.
- Theoretical and applied cryptography.

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 2100 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.
