Special Issue "Difference Equations, Symmetric, Close to Symmetric and Cyclic Systems of Difference Equations"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 August 2018).
There has been great recent interest in investigating the solvability and long-term behavior of solutions to linear and nonlinear difference equations and systems of difference equations of various types. One of the reasons for the interest is potential application of the methods, ideas and results related to the equations and systems of equations in some other branches of sciences, such as ecology, economics, biology, physics, population theory, etc. The mid-1990s started a considerable interest in concrete nonlinear difference equations and systems. If a difference equation is defined through a function of two variables, it is natural to form and study the corresponding two-dimensional symmetric system of difference equations, as well as some related systems, which are called close to symmetric systems of difference equations. In a similar way, cyclic systems of difference equations can be formed. This Special Issue is devoted to these and some related areas, which are popular nowadays.Prof. Stevo Stevic
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.
