Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will include papers on new cybernetics, basic paradoxes, and the time arrow applied in physics. Statistical classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and gravity theory (quantum and non-quantum) are all well-developed and well-known theories. These theories represent the basis of modern physics. Nevertheless, they contain several paradoxes, for example, the entropy increase paradox, Schrodinger’s cat paradox, information paradox of black holes, and the grandfather paradox. These paradoxes force many scientists to doubt the internal consistency of these theories. However, the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of existing physics without introducing any new laws. These topics are especially important when it comes to developing a deep understanding of modern physics and engineering (quantum computers, mesoscopic, and nano devices).

Some approaches to this conundrum were suggested in Kupervasser Oleg’s Application of New Cybernetics in Physics (https://www.elsevier.com/books/application-of-new-cybernetics-in-physics/kupervasser/978-0-12-812801-5): decoherence from an external observer (or environment); time arrow alignment; limits of the self-knowledge of the system. In recent years, we have also seen a large number of papers focusing on these, especially in the field of “quantum information”. In this Special Issue, we will consider physics (not philosophy) papers in these topics. We are especially interested in papers that demonstrate that all problems in these topics can be resolved in the framework of existing (not “alternative”) theories.

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 1600 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.
