Special issue of JVTSD

Fractional-dynamical Systems and Controls detail the use of fractional calculus (calculus of non-integer order) in the description and modeling of systems and in a range of control design and practical applications. It is largely self-contained, covering the fundamentals of fractional calculus together with some analytical and numerical techniques and providing MATLAB® codes for the simulation of fractional-dynamical systems (FDS). The use of fractional calculus can improve and generalize well-established control methods and strategies. Many different fractional-dynamical systems schemes are presented for control and dynamic systems problems. These extend to the challenging control engineering design problems of robust and nonlinear control. Practical material relating to a wide variety of applications including, among others, mechatronics, civil engineering, irrigation and water management, and biological systems is also provided. All the control schemes and applications are presented in the monograph with either system simulation results or real experimental results, or both. Fractional-order Systems and Controls introduces its readers – academic and industrial control researchers interested in mechatronics, nonlinear and robust control, and application fields from civil engineering to biological systems – to the essentials of FDS and imbues them with a basic understanding of FDS concepts and methods. With this knowledge readers can extend their use of FDS in other industrial system applications, thereby expanding their range of disciplines by exploiting this versatile new set of control techniques.

Selected papers of 1st International Conference on “Advanced Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence” (ICAMAI-2023; are also considered in this special issue.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collate original research articles that focus on the recent results, which can be obtained from the novel methods constructed by many researchers, for all types of these diseases, as well as developments in recent methods with new operators or new approximations. It will also welcome review articles discussing the current state of the art.

All papers submitted to the special volume will be peer-reviewed in accordance with the standard procedures of Journal of Vibration Testing and System Dynamics.

To prepare their manuscripts, authors are asked to closely follow the JVTSD “Guide for Authors” at Authors should submit their papers via the journal's online submission system. Submitted papers should not have been previously published or be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Papers must be written in good English. Authors with limitations in the command of written English are recommended to have their papers edited by a ‘Native English Scientific Editor’ before the first submission to JVTSD because poorly written pieces can compromise the decisions during the review process.
