Special Journal Issue to Focus on Nonlinear Dynamics

July 14, 2017


The ASME Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics is currently accepting manuscripts for a special issue covering nonlinear dynamical systems. The deadline for authors to submit a paper for the “Special Issue on Nonlinear Dynamics: Models, Behavior, and Techniques,” is August 1, 2017.

Nonlinear dynamical systems have applications in many fields, including engineering. A number of techniques, including analytical and numerical methods, have been established to qualitatively and quantitatively study the properties of nonlinear dynamical systems. Due to the rapid development of computational methods and tools in recent years, interest in research on nonlinear dynamical systems has increased dramatically. This special journal issue, which is expected to be published in late 2018, is intended to help promote the exchange of new ideas and methods — primarily analytical and numerical — and their use in the study of nonlinear dynamics.

The issue’s guest editors are seeking manuscripts involving applications that encompass real-world problems related to the fields of engineering — especially in the areas of aerospace, mechanical, ocean and civil engineering. Topics to be covered in the special issue will include nonlinear models; fractional order systems; perturbation and computational techniques; dynamic stability, bifurcations, and control; chaos, fractals, pattern formation, and rare events in nonlinear physical, engineering and biological systems; transient/extreme dynamics; complex behavior; computational fluid dynamics; mathematical physics; and signals and systems.


The guest editors for the special issue are Dumitru Baleanu of Cankaya University (dumitru@cankaya.edu.tr); Tamás Kalmár-Nagy of Budapest University of Technology and Economics (kalmarnagy@gmail.com); Themistoklis P. Sapsis from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (sapsis@mit.edu); and Hiroshi Yabuno of the University of Tsukuba (yabuno@esys.tsukuba.ac.jp).

Papers for the “Special Issue on Nonlinear Dynamics: Models, Behavior, and Techniques” should be submitted electronically by August 1, 2017 via the Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics page on the ASME Journals Digital Submission Site. Authors should select “Special Issue: Volume 13 — 9/2018 — Nonlinear Dynamics: Models, Behavior, and Techniques” under the special issues drop-down menu when submitting their papers.
