Differential and difference equations play an important role in many branches of mathematics, and they also often appear in other sciences. This fact leads us to more studying such equations and related boundary value problems in more detail, and a theory of solvability and (numerical) solutions for such equations are needed for distinct scientific groups.
Usually, one cannot find an exact solution for such equations, and one then needs to describe its qualitative properties in the appropriate functional spaces as well as to suggest a way of reducing the starting equation to a certain well known studied case, or to suggest some computational algorithm for the numerical solution. These studies are the intermediate points for solving equations.
There are a lot of methods for studying such problems in mathematics, as well as in the theory of differential and difference equations and boundary value problems. We hope this Issue will help mathematicians discover some new mathematical objects, approaches, and methods for their future works.
Symmetry ideas are often invisible in these studies, but they help us to decide on the right way to study them, and to show us the correct direction for future developments.

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 1400 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.
