EPJ ST Special Issue: Dynamical Analysis of Nonlinear Physical Systems: Mathematical Modeling, Artificial Intelligence, and Applications

Guest Editors: Jürgen Kurths, S. Lakshmanan, Chee Peng Lim, Fathalla Ali Rihan

Nonlinear physical systems are widespread in nature and throughout various scientific and professional fields. Nonlinear systems lack a straightforward and predictable cause-and-effect relationship. They involve numerous connections and dependencies that might lead to complex and unpredictable behaviors. Scientists, mathematicians, and engineers have been attracted by these systems for a long time because they can produce a wide range of complex phenomena that are difficult to forecast and analyze.

The study of nonlinear physical systems is primarily grounded in the understanding that many real-world phenomena do not adhere to the oversimplified assumptions of linearity. In such systems, the relationships between inputs and outputs display nonlinearity, meaning that even small alterations in initial conditions or parameters can lead to significantly amplified changes in the system's behavior. The butterfly effect, denoting the responsiveness of initial conditions, is a distinctive feature of nonlinear dynamics that holds substantial implications for chaos theory.

Nonlinear physical systems are essential in multiple scientific and engineering fields, presenting difficult challenges in mathematical modeling and Artificial intelligence (AI). The primary objective of this special issue of "Dynamical Analysis of Nonlinear Physical Systems" is to consolidate the most recent research and advancements in the fields of mathematical modeling and AI approaches. The focus is on their practical applications in the analysis and comprehension of nonlinear physical systems. The articles showcased in this special edition will offer significant perspectives on the progress and real-world utilization of dynamical analysis in this captivating domain.
