Symmetry is one of the central concepts in condensed matter physics. Many of the thermodynamic, transport and spectroscopic properties of materials are determined by the symmetry of the crystal lattice configurations, and from constitutive relationships. The phase transitions in most cases can be described by the change of the system’s symmetry properties. Symmetry analysis is also the core of model construction and group theoretical approaches.
The aim of this Special Issue of Symmetry is to collect contributions reporting the recent progress in condensed matter physics where the symmetry, the change of symmetry, or the lack of specific classes of symmetry plays a vital role. Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcomed. We also hope this Special Issue will facilitate interdisciplinary research between condensed matter physics and other research fields where the concept of symmetry is widely used.

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.
