Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Low-dimensional strongly correlated electron systems in condensed matter physics have been the subject of extensive research. These systems exhibit a variety of exotic properties such as unconventional superconductivity, topological semimetals and quantum spin liquids. Symmetry plays a crucial role in understanding and exploring new states of matter in condensed matter physics. Quantum Monte Carlo simulations have revealed the emergence of quantum critical points and quantum spin liquids in two-dimensional lattice models. The presence of intertwined charge and spin stripes has been observed in strongly correlated electron systems, providing insights into the microscopic correlations that define quantum states of matter. In addition, the behaviour of strongly correlated electron systems has been found to resemble that of structured fluids in soft matter, with long-range self-organisation and slow dynamics. Overall, these studies contribute to our understanding of low-dimensional strongly correlated electron systems and their connection to nanomaterials and symmetry in condensed matter physics.

This Special Issue intends to present a panorama of current developments in this area.

We look forward to receiving outstanding contributions dealing with the following topics:

  • Low-dimensional strongly correlated electron systems;
  • Condensed matter physics.

Please note that all submitted papers must be within the general scope of Symmetry.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Symmetry 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 2400 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.
