Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The modeling and control of nonlinear dynamic systems is still a challenging problem in mathematics and engineering. Despite much investigation being carried out so far, nonlinear and complex phenomena are not yet fully understood, due to their considerable randomness and a diversity of reasons underlying the energy dissipation involving the dynamic effects. In fact, the present knowledge and scientific tools are still far from capturing the overall richness of the system dynamics.

This Special Issue focuses on the modeling and control of nonlinear dynamic systems. Manuscripts on nonlinear dynamics, advanced control systems, complex dynamics, fractional calculus and its applications, fractals and chaos, multibody systems, robotics, and modelling, among others, are welcome.

The Special Issue will bring together contributions from researchers in different topics of engineering, mathematics, physics, biology, geophysics, and other sciences. Papers describing original theoretical research as well as new experimental results are expected.

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 850 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.
