Special Issue "Fuzzy Mathematics Applied to Science, Engineering and Sustainability Issues"
A special issue of Symmetry (ISSN 2073-8994).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 February 2020.
Fuzzy mathematics, also called mathematics of uncertainty, gifted to humanity by Zadeh in the second half of the 20th century, is now established as one of the most important tools in dealing with imprecision and vagueness. The consequences of this theory can be seen in almost all major areas of Mathematics, Science, Economics, and Technology. The applications of this theory are also widespread in different areas including Artificial intelligence, Networks, Robotics, and Control theory. Most of the algebraic, analytic, topological, and discrete structures in mathematics possess “fuzzy” counterparts.
Further, mathematics of uncertainty is used to analyze the relationship between the sustainable development goals and human trafficking. The members of all United Nation States agreed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) address five broad areas of critical importance: people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership. As an overarching principle, the Goals posit that States have a collective interest and responsibility to ensure that the most vulnerable people and populations are not left behind by economic, social, and environmental progress. There are serious problems that the world faces. Solutions to these problems are contained in the SDGs. The problems include issues such as climate change and trafficking in persons.
The aim of this Special Issue is two-fold. The first one is studying fuzzyness in different areas of mathematics, giving emphasis to applications in different engineering fields. The second is to analyze economic development, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability using fuzzy mathematics. The lack of accurate data related to areas makes mathematics of uncertainty a natural tool for this analysis.
Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of the Symmetry journal.

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.
