Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Statistical thermodynamics approaches the fundamental thermodynamic concepts of entropy, temperature, energy, the foundations of quantum mechanics, and the physical basis of gas-, liquid-, and solid-phase properties, from a microscopic viewpoint. It develops the relationship between macroscopic and microscopic thermodynamics, the molecular basis of transport phenomena, and chemical kinetics, but also the bases of spectroscopy. Statistical thermodynamics represents a fundamental approach in emerging technology areas such as nanoscale sciences and the application of modern theoretical and experimental techniques in traditional research areas, from physics of fluids to combustion, from thermal diffusion to biosystems, etc.

This Special Issue proposes to physicists, engineers, chemists, biologists, economists, and other scientists to develop some topics of statistical thermodynamics both from a theoretical and an applied viewpoint, to highlight the new frontiers of statistical thermodynamics. In particular, any paper able to show new frontiers in this research topic is welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
