PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

It is known from the nonlinear theory that a self-excited attractor has a basin of attraction that is associated with an unstable equilibrium, while a hidden attractor has a basin of attraction that does not contain the stable and unstable manifolds of any unstable equilibrium point. Almost all famous chaotic attractors are self-excited, while recently many researchers have proposed new interesting chaotic systems with hidden attractors. In case of the two-dimensional systems, hidden oscillations can be investigated using analytical methods. However, for the study of stability and oscillations in nonlinear multidimensional systems numerical methods are often used. Furthermore, implementation and realization of hidden attractors with discrete and analog ICs have been studied recently. However, implementation of such systems is still a challenge. 

This symposium provides a platform for researchers to exchange ideas in recent development and advances in dynamical systems with Hidden Attractors. All papers will be peer-reviewed, and upon acceptance, they will be published in the special issue of Journal of Vibration Testing and System Dynamics and Journal of Discontinuity, Nonlinearity and Complexity. Manuscripts are solicited in the following topics but not limited to:

  • Novel systems with Hidden Attractors
  • Dynamical behavior of systems with Hidden Attractors
    Analytical and numerical tools that help us investigate Hidden Attractors

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

While enjoying substantial progress in simulation and prediction of fluid flows, still we face challenges in various flow problems, which stem from their inherited nonlinearity and multiscale/multiphysics behaviors.  An example of the problems is the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which started from an effluent jet with O (10) m in spatial sizes at the ocean bottom and then evolved into floating film patches with O (100) miles in horizontal scales on the ocean surface. So far essentially we have no appropriate methods and also computer models that are able to directly simulate the whole flow processes starting from the jet all the way to floating films. Successful simulation of these problems relies on necessary numerical algorithms, model coupling, parallel computing, etc. This minisymposium provides a platform for researchers to present interesting flow phenomena encountered in frontiers of work, ideas and methods to simulate and predict them, and performance of the methods in applications. The minisymposium welcomes theoretical and numerical discussions from all mathematical, scientific, and engineering disciplines (e.g., computational math, mechanical engineering, and environmental sciences).

Over the past decades, the fractional calculus has become a popular branch of mathematics. The fractional derivative holds memory effects or history dependence and performs as a powerful tool in many real-world applications. However, it is a challenging work to consider discrete-time problems. This symposium will exchange new ideas in both aspects of theories and applications of fractional difference equations.

All papers will be peer-reviewed, and upon acceptance, they will be published in of Discontinuity, Nonlinearity, and Complexity. Manuscripts are solicited in topics including, but not limited to:

  • Dynamic analysis of fractional discrete-time system;
  • Applications of discrete fractional calculus;
  • New approaches or theory to describe memory effects or nonlocality;
  • Other emerging topics in fractional calculus.

Nowadays, Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) has become a useful tool for direct measurements of intermolecular forces with atomic precision. This microscope can be used in various fields such as semiconductors, manufacturing, polymeric materials, bio-analysis, biomaterials, and in the studying of metal surfaces. (AFM) robot is a powerful tool for nano-level evaluation, biomaterials diagnosis, nano description of materials and equipment, and assembly at nanoscale. (AFM)has a cantilever with a probe of a very fine tip, by which the information from the sample and tip interaction can be obtained. The accuracy of power estimation based on AFM measured information depends on the selected dynamic model for the cantilever. With its effect on the controlling system, dynamic system model directly affects the images resolution.

Fractional sums and differences were introduced in the 90th of the last century. The seminal result is presented in the Miller and Ross’ paper “Fractional Difference Calculus” in Proceedings of the International Symposium on Univalent Functions, Fractional Calculus and Their Applications, Japan, 1988. The next significant step in the development of discrete fractional calculus (Riemann-Liouville and Caputo) was done in works by Atici and Eloe in the first decade of this century. Among the other things, Atici and Eloe obtained a solution of the initial value problem for a simple fractional difference equation. In 2014 Wu and Baleanu proposed to use this solution to generate fractional difference maps. Fractional universal and standard maps as solutions of the fractional differential equations of kicked systems were introduced in 2008 in a paper by Tarasov and Zaslavsky “Fractional equations of kicked systems and discrete maps” and later fractional logistic map was introduced in 2013 by Edelman. The applications of fractional maps include secure communication, economics, and lifespan of living species. Significant progress in the development and applications to control of the Grünwald–Letnikov fractional differences was done by Ostalczyk with co-authors (see Ostalczyk’s book “Discrete Fractional Calculus”, 2016). Over the last decade many authors, not mentioned here, contributed to the development of the discrete fractional calculus and its applications. The purpose of this symposium is to make an overview of the recent results, to reconcile any differences in notations used by various authors, and to discuss new directions in this emerging field.

Nonlinearity and stochasticity are extremely important factors in a wide variety of areas, including civil engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, and so on. The systems with nonlinearity and stochasticity could provide an accurate mathematical/physical framework to describe the real world in comparison with the deterministic systems.

With the development of data and computational science, the interactions between data science and random dynamical systems are becoming exciting and have aroused many scholars’ widespread interest. Data-driven techniques as a powerful tool in many real-world applications are indispensable for understanding the dynamic behaviors of real systems from noisy observation data. This mini-symposia is organized to collect and discuss recent advance in application of data science in the stochastic dynamics in order to promote the rapid development of related fields. Relevant contributions in the areas of stochastic dynamics and data science are welcome. Topics of interests in Stochastic Dynamics and Data Science include but are not limited to the following aspects:
 
  • Stochasticity quantification and analysis
  • Data-driven modeling and analysis of nonlinear stochastic systems
  • Data-driven understanding, prediction and control of nonlinear stochastic systems
  • Data-driven reliability analysis of nonlinear stochastic systems
  • Inverse problems of nonlinear stochastic systems
  • Machine learning meets nonlinear stochastic systems
