Recent Applications in Differential Equations Modeling with Discontinuous Right-Hand Side

Call for Papers

Differential equations with discontinuous right-hand side are finding interesting applications in several different disciplines. Compared with the system of conventional differential equations, these systems can reveal coexisting solutions, jumped, transient chaos of rich and complex nonlinear behaviors difficult to design and to verify, while the requirements for dynamics performances and safety are also increasing. It is currently of high interest to control engineers and mathematicians in research institutions as well as in many industrial sectors. In addition, the dynamics analysis based on the Filippov solution to differential equations modeling with discontinuous right-hand side has been investigated by many authors.

This special issue is aiming to gather recent research efforts on the development and applications of differential equations modeling with discontinuous right-hand side and to see the latest developments.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Modeling and analysis of differential equations with discontinuous right-hand side
  • Dynamics analysis and control of differential system with discontinuous right-hand side
  • Novel techniques for simulation and emulation of memristive nonlinear switching system
  • Cross-disciplinary applications of nonlinear switching system
  • Differential equations with impulses or other discontinuous terms
