Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Graph theory is the most versatile and powerful mechanism for representing a variety of systems for solving problems of modeling properties, their structure and behavior dynamics. This mathematical tool makes it possible to formalize the general laws of the functioning and development of complex and dynamic systems in all advanced fields, including cybernetics, telecommunications, biology, materials science, social sciences, and economics.

In this regard, the proposed Special Issue contains the results of research in a wide variety of areas. However, the general aim lies in modeling the characteristics of complex systems, formalizing their structures and general patterns of their development, optimizing the processes occurring in them, researching algorithms for their control and self-organization based on graph theory and the properties of their symmetry/asymmetry.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
