The aim of this Special Issue is to collect contributions on nonlinear circuits and systems that presents special “symmetry”. Symmetry in our special means to get from nonlinear circuits and systems added values, that cannot be achieved with linear systems. Very simple nonlinear circuits and devices present complex behavior in mantaining order and generating patterns. Imperfect dynamical nonlinear systems work thanks to noise. Taming nonlinear circuits can be achieved thanks to structural asymmetries. Papers regarding theory and applications, with an emphasis on uncertainty, noise and imperfections, are welcome; moreover, papers regarding taming chaos and self-organization-based devices are of wide interest. The theory of nonlinear circuits and their applications are timely subjects today; moreover, the hidden order of such a system is an interesting and widely-discussed topic in the literature. Indeed the presence of noise and uncertainty in these systems has not widely faced. Therefore, the efforts of contributions should be to emphasize this topic. The papers should also concern special types of bifurcation that arise in these types of systems. Communications regarding chaos synchronization in structures with symmetries are also encouraged. Robustness evaluation performance in nonlinear networks should be another topic for contributions. Engineering applications regarding the previous areas will be highly considered.

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.
