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
  • Bifurcation analysis and multistability of systems with Hidden Attractors
  • Fractional order Hidden Attractors
  • Synchronization schemes of systems with Hidden Attractors
  • Control of systems with Hidden Attractors
  • Cryptography and secure communication schemes using Hidden Attractors

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

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

                                     PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

The analysis and the mathematical modelling of systems where agents interact dynamically over time have been developed in the last years using a combination of techniques from Dynamical Systems and Game Theory. These tools can be usefully applied to a wide class of important problems (in social sciences, economics, biology…) and understanding the behaviour of their agents, whether they are rational players, markets, ecosystems, communication systems, etc.
This minisymposium aims to bring together world top researchers, practitioners, and students from the fields of Dynamical Games, Game Theory and applications to such areas as Biology, Economics, Engineering, Energy, Natural Resources, and Social Sciences.
Covered topics include dynamic games, stochastic games, differential games, evolutionary games, models of learning and evolution, repeated games, mean-field models, voting, auctions, matching, assignment games and other research areas of cooperative and non-cooperative game theory, preferentially where dynamics play a role, as well as the associated applications in social, economic, life, physical and computer sciences.
