Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The analysis and understanding of nonlinear systems are paramount for several reasons. Many systems in nature and engineering exhibit nonlinear behavior due to their inherent complexity, making it crucial to understand these systems accurately for predictive purposes. Linear models often fail to capture the complex response of real-world systems, necessitating the use of nonlinear models for more accurate representations. Moreover, nonlinear systems often exhibit emergent properties, where collective behavior leads to novel phenomena not observed in linear systems. Understanding these emergent properties is vital for various applications, including assessing system resilience and stability, designing effective passive and active control strategies, and tuning to the system’s best vibration mitigation or energy harvesting performance. Additionally, nonlinear analysis allows for the exploration of rich and complex dynamics and interactions, such as chaos, bifurcations, and self-organization, providing insights into underlying mechanisms across diverse fields. Therefore, advancements in nonlinear analysis have far-reaching implications for tackling real-world challenges and advancing scientific knowledge.

This Topic serves as a paramount platform for eminent experts, scholars, academics, young scientists, and industry professionals engaged in the interdisciplinary domain of complex engineered systems. It endeavors to showcase the cutting-edge advancements in the field, thereby establishing the forefront of research. With a primary emphasis on comprehending the intricacies of complex nonlinear systems in different areas of engineering and technology, the Topic’s aim is to explore their industrial applications, either existing or prospective, culminating in a substantial impact through the exchange of knowledge and technology transfer. Such focused activities hold the potential to catalyze transformative shifts in both academic discourse and industrial practice, fostering innovation, collaboration, and the development of novel solutions to real-world challenges. By facilitating the dissemination of pioneering research findings and fostering interdisciplinary dialogue, this Topic seeks to not only advance the current state of the art but also inspire new avenues of inquiry and discovery.
