Modeling, Analysis, and Applications of Complex Systems

Call for Papers

Recent advances in theory and applications of complex dynamical systems have contributed much to the successful handling of certain problems in biology, physics, economics, engineering, and so forth that until recently were thought too difficult to be analyzed. These complex systems may be characterized by systems with uncertainty, impulse, time delay, stochastic perturbation, hybrid dynamics, distributed dynamics, and chaotic dynamics. The overall aim of this special issue is to bring together the latest or innovative knowledge and advances in mathematics for handling complex systems, which may depend largely on methods from mathematical analysis, artificial intelligence, statistics, and engineering, including nonlinear dynamics, time series analysis, neural networks, and evolutionary computation. The solicited papers in this special issue should provide solutions to modeling, analysis, control, and applications of real-world complex systems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Impulsive systems
  • Pulse-modulated systems
  • Switching systems
  • Delayed systems
  • Discontinuous control system theory
  • Stability, stabilization, and synchronization of complex systems
  • Bifurcation theory and chaotic dynamics
  • Modeling and applications of complex systems
  • Multiscale systems
  • Analysis and modeling of biological networks
