Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The study of differential equations is useful for understanding natural phenomena. In this Special Issue, we aim to present the latest research on the properties of ODE (Ordinary Differential Equations) and PDE (Partial Differential Equations) related to different techniques for finding solutions and methods describing the nature of these solutions or their related approximations.

In addition, we welcome papers on numerical aspects using classical or non-standard approaches, for example, the concepts and related formalism of special functions. Furthermore, articles on fractional differential equations are of interest, as are contributions related to the symmetry approach to problems of integrability in the field of differential equations.

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.

Particular Solutions of Ordinary Differential Equations Using Discrete Symmetry Groups
Symmetry 2020, 12(1), 180; https://doi.org/10.3390/sym12010180 - 19 Jan 2020
Abstract
This article explains how discrete symmetry groups can be directly applied to obtain the particular solutions of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The particular solutions of some nonlinear ordinary differential equations have been generated by means of their discrete symmetry groups. Full article

Abstract
In this paper, we deal with the existence and asymptotic behavior of solutions for a fractional Kirchhoff type problem involving the electromagnetic fields and critical nonlinearity by using the classical critical point theorem. Meanwhile, an example is given to illustrate the application of [...] Read more.

Abstract
This paper deals with the initial value problem for linear systems of fractional differential equations (FDEs) with variable coefficients involving Riemann–Liouville and Caputo derivatives. Some basic properties of fractional derivatives and antiderivatives, including their non-symmetry w.r.t. each other, are discussed. The technique of [...] Read more.
This paper deals with the initial value problem for linear systems of fractional differential equations (FDEs) with variable coefficients involving Riemann–Liouville and Caputo derivatives. Some basic properties of fractional derivatives and antiderivatives, including their non-symmetry w.r.t. each other, are discussed. The technique of the generalized Peano–Baker series is used to obtain the state-transition matrix. Explicit solutions are derived both in the homogeneous and inhomogeneous case. The theoretical results are supported by examples. Full article
