Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue of Symmetry is dedicated to asymptotic modelling. Galileo’s concept of idealization is the cornerstone of contemporary science. Idealization is based on increasing the symmetry of the original system, and its tool in applied mathematics is asymptotic analysis. It is no exaggeration to say that the basic models of applied mathematics, physics, and mechanics are asymptotic. There are many methods for constructing asymptotic models, and their development, generalization, and application are of fundamental importance both for theorists and for engineers. We hope this Special Issue will help theorists to find new tasks and areas of application for their knowledge, and engineers to find new methods for their practice.
This Special Issue invites research and review papers on various fields of theoretical physics and applied mathematics, including classical and quantum mechanics, mechanics of fluids and solids, and asymptotology.

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. Symmetry 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 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.
