Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry is an important property by which we identify the structure of objects. The symmetry properties of equations can be used to determine solutions with particular properties or to classify equations with the same intrinsic properties. The study of symmetry is important for both applied and pure mathematics, as well as physics, engineering and other mathematically based sciences.

Symmetry analysis based on Lie group theory is one of the most important methods for solving nonlinear problems. This method can be used to find the symmetries of almost any system of differential equations, and these symmetries can be used to reduce the complexity of physical problems governed by equations.

Therefore, this Special Issue titled “Application of Symmetry in Equations” aims to collect outstanding research results in the field of symmetry in differential equations and its related fields. We encourage revolutionary research results, including new approaches, techniques and perspectives. Please note that all submitted papers should be within the scope of the journal and there should be no conflicts of interest.

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.
