Nonlinear Analysis and Differential Equations

Open Special Issue: Fractional Differential Equations

Lead guest editor: Haiyong Qin
Guest editors: Bo Zhu and Lang Li

In recent years, more and more researchers investigate the dynamical systems described by fractional differential equations. Researches in fractional system and its applications have become intense around the world.

This special issue welcomes original research findings on fractional calculus, fractional differential equation and fractional control system. Fractional models are effective in many ways, such as more accurate description, better prediction and novel application of linear and nonlinear phenomena in science and engineering. This special issue offers a venue for researchers to make rapid exchange of ideas and techniques in fractional differential equations and their applications.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
      - Existence, controllability and stability of fractional systems;
      - Fractional dynamics and control;
      - Theorem of fractional differential equations;
      - Numerical methods and numerical analysis of fractional differential equations;
      - Nonlinear differential dynamical systems;
      - Applications of fractional models;
      - Other related topics
