The notion of '''symmetry'' is fundamental for the whole theoretical physics. Modern cosmology, which is based on gravity, quantum theory, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics, is no exception. In the recent decades, cosmology has stopped being a pure theoretical science, acquiring the experimental status as a result of the data obtained by means of WMAP, Hubble Space Telescope, Planck Space Observatory, and so on. Besides, considering that the potentialities for energy increase of modern and future colliders are rather limited, experimental studies for a high-energy physics are becoming increasingly prominent in cosmology in an effort to establish the «new physics», beyond the Standard Model.
Taking this into account, in experimental cosmology, a model of Lambda-Cold Dark Matter naturally becomes a problem of top priority, especially in regard to the selection of the adequate inflation scenario and to solutions of the Dark-Energy and Dark-Matter problems. It is hard to overestimate the role of symmetry as an instrument for studies in this context, on the one hand, because symmetry is an important component of the corresponding mathematical apparatus and, on the other hand, because, on the basis of theoretical calculations and experimental data, it logically limits the choice of solutions in cases when such a choice is too large.

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.
