Special Issue in Symmetry: Symmetric and non-symmetric contractions in various abstract spaces
The quasi-metric, which is a natural generalization of the notion of the metric, has been one of the important topics in topology and analysis in the last few decades. Roughly speaking, the quasi-metric appears to be obtained by relaxing the symmetric condition from the axioms of the standard metric. Regarding physical phenomena, the quasi-metric can be more useful in solving real-life problems. On the other hand, one can question whether there is a positive constant D such that the distance from a point x to y is dominated by D times the distance from y to x. The answer is affirmative, and such spaces are called the D-symmetric quasi-metric. These spaces are quite rich since they lie between the quasi-metric spaces and metric spaces, and they have proven to be very interesting topics for researchers who work in fixed point theory.

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.
