Special Issue "Stochastic Modeling in Biology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: stochastic processes; stochastic modeling in biology; computer simulation
The aim of this Special Issue is to publish original research articles covering advances in the theory of stochastic modeling in biology. In this framework, continuous and discrete time stochastic processes will be discussed, as well as stochastic differential equations, fractional differential equations, correlated processes, first-passage-time problems, stochastic optimal controls, parameter estimation, and simulation techniques. All the above topics are intended to be treated in the spirit of modeling the evolution of stochastic systems of interest in biology.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
-Stochastic processes for neuronal activity;
-Markov and semi-Markov processes;
-Fractional Brownian motion.
Stochastic models to describe the evolution of biological systems are very important; in fact, often a mere deterministic description is insufficient to capture the essence of the qualitative behavior of such systems, when one varies the conditions of the environment and/or the physical parameters.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of articles reflecting the latest developments in stochastic modeling in biology, with the aim of studying the qualitative and quantitative behavior of phenomena in which the random component is essential.

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.
