Special Issue Information
Aims and Scope: Fixed point theory is a beautiful mixture of analysis, topology, and geometry. Over the last sixty years or so the theory of fixed points has been revealed as a very powerful and important tool in the study of nonlinear phenomena. In particular, fixed point theory has been applied in such diverse fields as biology, chemistry, economics, engineering, game theory, physics and logic programming.
Fractional calculus has played an important role in the study of the real world nonlinear fractional differential equations that arise from the modeling of nonlinear phenomena, optimal control of complex systems and other scientific research. The main research topics in this field include approximation theory and operator theory, numerical computational methods, control for nonlinear fractional differential equations, well-posedness of fractional mathematical models and the development of new technologies.
The aim of this Special Issue is to report new fixed point theorems as well as fractional calculus results and their applications. This Special Issue will accept high quality papers containing original research results and survey articles of exceptional merit.
Topics: The research topics include but are not limited to:
- Fixed point theory and its applications
- Best proximity point theory and its applications
- Algorithms for fixed points and best proximity points
- Nonlinear problems via fixed point theory approaches
- Initial value problems of fractional differential equations
- Boundary value problems of fractional differential equations
- Singular and impulsive fractional differential and integral equations
- Well-posedness and control in fixed point theory and fractional differential equations
A limited number of expository and survey articles will also be published.

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.
