PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

Complexity theory along with complexity create a bridge crossing over the quantitative and qualitative facets of life, which enables the comprehensive contemplation of diverse systems from as cells to human beings, ecosystems to organizations, which are possible to be comprehended merely partially by traditional scientific methods. Complexity reflects the disentangling of complex, dynamic, complicated, nonlinear, adaptive, emergent systems, amongst many more. Besides these, complexity provides facilitation in seeing the problems through multiple perspectives, by looking into the micro and macro issues and comprehending the way they are interdependent. Complexity science, on the other hand, merges the two solitudes of both micro (analysis of the parts) and macro analyses (holistic analysis), ranging across human genome to evolutionary biology across the spectrum natural and human systems. When patterns in complex systems are in question, systems with multicomponents display a spontaneous form of organization into macroscopic structures with simple rules leading to unpredictable behaviors. In that regard, complexity science seeks to discover the underlying principles, theoretical aspects of emergence with an orientation to use them through applications so that biological, physical and social worlds can be understood at the pedestal of emergence of chaos and order as the hallmarks of natural systems as well as designed systems. The theories of complex systems besides these points provide the ideas suggestive of the way intractable the world is considering that even the simplest of phenomena involve enormous and even incalculable complexity. Consequently, it has been observed that many applications of science have turned into multimethod case studies based on evolving knowledge over time. 

The mathematics of data, by encompassing a multifaceted blend of mathematical techniques and models, is pivotal for tackling voluminous datasets and extracting significant insights from them. Computation of the complexity of a particular mathematical model requires the carrying out of the analyses over the run time, which is concerned with and based on the type of data (big data) identified, determined and employed along with the methods.  While providing the tools required to navigate through the complexities of data, Artificial Intelligence (AI) as well as data analysis rely on foundational mathematical concepts, which can pave the way for novice perspectives, solutions to challenges and directions for the future elements to arise.  Such an interplay emerging on dynamic scales can highlight mutually enriching association between mathematics and data in the ever-evolving digitizing landscape and ecology science, computer science, informatics, medicine, biology, applied sciences, engineering, bioengineering, and so forth, towards the integration, analysis, processing of models and data-centric prediction-based domains to name some.  

To these ends, the aim of our symposium is to unify and put into practice the diverse and evolving approaches to complexity theory, mathematical sciences and applied complexity science for providing a key into understanding the current and conceivable complex problems so that mathematical frameworks can serve as the plinth to understand the role of AI and future science of complexity.

  • Fractional calculus and complexity
  • Quantum algorithms and complexity
  • Probabilistic scientific computing
  • Partial differential equations (PDEs) and / or learning / inference problems

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

Nonlinear dynamic models are characterized by intricate attributes like high dimensionality and heterogeneity, having fractional-order derivatives, and constituting fractional calculus, which brings forth a thorough comprehension and control of the related dynamics and structure. Fractional models have become relevant to dealing with phenomena with memory effects in contrast with traditional models of ordinary and partial differential equations. Compared with integer-order calculus, which constitutes the mathematical basis of most control systems, fractional calculus can provide better equipment to handle the observed time-dependent impacts and generalized memory. Analysis and control of fractional order nonlinear systems are also important, along with the observation of unknown inputs and concepts being used and derived analytically. Multiple nonlinear systems demonstrate phenomena in which fluctuations enhance synchronization and periodic behaviors of the system. Chaos synchronization in systems has the states of complete synchronization and generalized or internal synchronization.

Fractional calculus, through the investigation of fractional-order integral and derivative operators with real or complex domains have merged with the advances in the high-speed and applicable computing technologies; and hence, computational processing analyses, as a method of reasoning and the main pillar of the majority of current research, can be of aid to tackling nonlinear dynamic problems through novel strategies based on observations and complex data. To be able to provide feasible and applicable solutions within the dynamic processes of the nonlinear systems, methods related to analytical, numerical, simulation-related, and computational analyses can be employed by considering the control-theoretic aspects to that associated. Thus, this stance enables to provide a bridge between mathematics and computer science besides other wide range of sciences so that transition from integer to fractional order methods can be ensured. Fractional derivatives and fractional differential equations are used extensively in modeling diverse, dynamic processes in the physical and natural world, which provides aid for the description of dynamic and nonlinear behaviors of nature. All these aspects are important for the optimal prediction solutions, critical decision-making processes, optimization, quantification, multiplicity, controllability, observability, synchronization and stabilization of fractional, neural and computational systems amongst many others.

This sophisticated approach, with the theoretical and applied dimensions of nonlinear dynamic systems merging fractional mathematics and computing technologies to be presented to demonstrate the significance of novel approaches in the related realms have become more prominent in nonlinear dynamic systems, facilitating to achieve viable solutions, optimization processes, numerical simulations besides technical analyses and related applications in areas like mathematics, medicine, neuroscience, engineering, physics, biology, virology, chemistry, genetics, information science, information and communication technologies, informatics, space sciences, applied sciences, finance, and social sciences, to name some. Accordingly, we hope that our symposium will be a platform to pave the way for novel research, fruitful discussions and thought-provoking experiences.

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC

Many phenomena of the real world that come from different fields such as biology, medicine, finance, economics, computer science, physics, and engineering, can be modelled by nonlinear differential equations. However, it is an arduous task to obtain exact solutions of such nonlinear differential equations.

Lie group analysis approach, originally developed by Sophus Lie (1842-1899), is a powerful and effective approach for solving nonlinear differential equations. Over the past few decades, a large number of publications in theoretical and applied mathematics have been devoted to the Lie group analysis methods and their applications.

The aim of this symposium is to focus the attention of researchers on Lie group methods to search for exact solutions of nonlinear models in physics, engineering, finance, economics, biology as well as to present recent developments of the theoretical tools of the Lie group methods applicable to the study of differential equations.

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF TOPIC 

Many systems which are investigated and used in science and engineering are systems with memory. In many cases, the memory is the asymptotically power-law memory. The use of fractional calculus is the best-known way to investigate these systems. As in regular dynamics, in fractional dynamics, maps are easier to investigate than the corresponding continuous systems. Many general properties of fractional systems were obtained by using fractional maps. The purpose of this symposium is to discuss existing results and coordinate the future development in the research and applications of discrete fractional systems.
