Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Models of differential equations (DEs) describe a wide range of complex issues of ecology, health, biology, chemistry, cultural heritage conservation, engineering, physical sciences, economics, and finance. Differential modelling and difference equations are tools to understand the dynamics and to do forecasting and scenario analysis; in addition, they allow for the detection of optimal solutions according to selected criteria. 

This issue focuses on modeling through differential equations (both ODE and PDE) and aims to highlight old and new challenges in the formulation, solution, understanding, and interpretation of differential models in different real world applications. 

Classical formulations or more recent approaches based on compartmental models, dynamic systems on networks, multiscale problems, fractional differential equations, and Hamiltonian dynamic evolutions are all welcome. The covered technical topics range from analytical methods including phase plane analysis, linearization of non-linear systems, bifurcations, general theory of existence and approximation of non-linear solutions of DEs, to explicit, implicit, positive, non-standard, geometric numerical methods for initial and boundary valued DE problems. Classical research questions are faced and new challenges, such as the numerical treatment of uncertainty, will be addressed.

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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
