Theory and Applications of Periodic Solutions and Almost Periodic Solutions

Description

The Theory of periodic solutions and almost periodic solutions is an important and well-established branch of the modern theory of differential equations. The periodic as well as almost periodic features arise in numerous phenomena found in science, nature, and social sciences. For example, to explore the impact of environmental factors in mathematical biology, the assumption of periodicity of parameters is more realistic and important due to many periodic factors such as seasonal effects of weather, food supplies, mating habits, and harvesting. However, if the various constituent components of the temporally nonuniform environment are with incommensurable (noninteger multiples) periods, then one has to consider the environment to be almost periodic. It is also well known that the existence and nonexistence of periodic (or almost periodic) solutions to a given system are closely related to the classical oscillation theory, and oscillation is notably an intrinsic feature of many dynamical systems.

We invite researchers to submit original research articles as well as review articles on various dynamical systems and their applications to the other applied sciences. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Periodic and almost periodic solutions of differential, functional, impulsive, and difference equations
  • Periodic and almost periodic solutions of neutral equations
  • Stability of differential, functional, and difference equations
  • Bifurcations and chaos
  • Hopf bifurcations of functional equations
  • Mathematical biology
  • Neural networks

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal';s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ddns/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ddns/taps/ according to the following timetable:
