It is well-believed that quantum field theory represents the basic framework of particle physics and their interactions. The success of renormalized quantum electrodynamics by predicting several properties of subatomic particles, in addition to the description of the weak and strong interactions which lead to the Standard Model and predictions for the Higgs boson, is extraordinary. The most precise experimental test of quantum electrodynamics concerns the measure of the magnetic moment of muons which agree with theoretical predictions to nine significant digits. Abundant fields of applications based on quantum field theory have been explored in theoretical physics, mainly in condensed matter physics and quasiparticles theory. Despite this triumph, the grand unification of the weak, strong, and electromagnetic interactions is still fruitless, and as a result, new phenomenological theories have emerged, such as supersymmetry, supergravity, string theory, canonical quantum gravity, and twistor theory.
The aim of this Special issue is first to study some applications of quantum field theory in a broad sense and to explore the phenomenological theories that may lead toward a Grand Unification.

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 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.
