The search for regularities in the structure of chemical substrates and the direction of a chemical reaction is closely related to the concept of symmetry/asymmetry of the potential energy of interaction between the structural units of a substance. On a smaller scale, the characteristics of a structural unit are a consequence of the symmetry of the wave functions of the particles included in it. Not only group theory, but also elements of graph theory, probability theory, fuzzy set theory, matroid theory, discrete geometry, topology, and many other branches of modern mathematics are widely used to interpret the symmetry/asymmetry of chemical objects.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect materials that explore the applications of any branches of mathematics, including those listed above, to chemical modeling, with the aim of revealing new information about the symmetry/asymmetry of the structures of living and non-living matter, which will undoubtedly help theoretical chemists overcome barriers in understanding the results obtained by mathematicians and vice versa. We would like to invite both original and review articles to be submitted to this Special Issue in accordance with the above principles.

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. 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.
