Recent Advances in Hybrid Dynamical Systems

Call for Papers

There has been a growing interest in hybrid dynamical systems in recent years due to their important applications in various industrial and technological areas such as communication, complex networks, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, switching circuits in power electronics, spacecrafts control, and ecosystem management. This special issue intends to provide an opportunity to learn and share new developments in the field of hybrid dynamical systems. Hopefully, this special issue will stimulate new important research and collaboration to the world of scientific community.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles on theory and applications of hybrid dynamical systems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Impulsive systems
  • Switched system
  • Dynamical systems on time scales
  • Stability theory and stabilization
  • Bifurcation theory and chaotic dynamics
  • Control theory and optimization
  • Sample data systems
  • Sliding mode control
  • Impact mechanical systems
  • Network control and synchronization
  • Modeling and control of complex systems

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at according to the following timetable:
