The proposed Special Issue (SI) of the journal Symmetry aims to cover the exchange and dissemination of the concept of symmetry in the modelling and analysis of dynamic features occurring in various branches of science including physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering (mechanics, mechatronics, civil engineering, electronics, informatics, bioengineering, etc.).
The approaches based on dynamical symmetry breaking generalize and unify theories developed and employed in the aforementioned sciences under the concept of invariance of the global/local behavior of the points of spacetime, including temporal/spatiotemporal symmetries.
Since a property of the symmetry of the investigated system implies its conservation quantity like energy, linear/angular momentum, electric charge etc., contributions of research based on the mathematical models of nonlinear partial and ordinary differential equations are especially welcome.
The following topics are also included: (i) discrete vs. continuous symmetry breaking; (ii) solitary waves; (iii) symmetry breaking instability; (iv) symmetry exhibited by MEMS/NEMS; (v) arrays of oscillators subjected to electric/magnetic/thermal fields; (vi) time-symmetry breaking in quantum oscillators; (vii) symmetry breaking of resonances; (viii) symmetry in fluid-structure interaction; (ix) symmetry vs. asymmetry in pattern formation; (x) symmetry in solid-gas phase transition; (xi) continuous vs. discontinuous symmetry; (xii) temporal vs. spatiotemporal symmetry; (xiii) symmetry in transition from regular to chaotic dynamics.

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 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 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.
