Series B of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems is focused on the interdisciplinary interactions between mathematical modeling, analysis and scientific computations. The Journal covers chemical, engineering, physical, and life sciences. All contributions must be original research papers of very high quality.

Review Procedures All papers will undergo a thorough peer review unless the subject matter of the paper does not fit the Journal; in this case, it will be returned promptly to the author. Every effort will be made to secure a quick decision and rapid publication, if accepted, of a paper.

Manuscripts should be in English and submitted online in pdf format. One or two editors whose areas are closely related to the paper should be selected in the submission process. Articles may not fit the journal well if no proper editors can be selected.

Submission of a manuscript is a representation that the work has not been previously published, has not been copyrighted, is not being submitted for publication elsewhere, and that its submission has been approved by all of the authors and by the institution where the work was carried out. Furthermore, it indicates that any person cited as a source of personal communications has approved such citation, and that the authors have agreed that the copyright in the article shall be assigned exclusively to the publisher upon acceptance of the article.

Line Numbers If your document was prepared using LaTeX, please add \usepackage[pagewise]{lineno}\linenumbers to the preamble, as a courtesy to referees who may wish to provide detailed feedback.

Manuscripts should meet common standards of usage and grammar. Number each page. Page 1 should contain the title, authors' names and complete affiliations. Place any footnotes to the title at the bottom of Page 1. Each paper requires an abstract not exceeding 200 words summarizing the techniques, methods and main conclusions. AMS subject classifications must accompany all articles and be placed at the bottom of Page 1. E-mail addresses of all authors should be placed at the end of the paper. Each paper requires a running head (abbreviated form of the title) of no more than 40 characters.

Equations should be centered with the number placed in parentheses at the right margin.

Figures must be drafted in high resolution and high contrast on separate pieces of white paper, in a form suitable for photographic reproduction and reduction.

References should be listed alphabetically, typed and punctuated according to the following examples:

1.   S. N. Chow and J. K. Hale, "Methods of Bifurcation Theory," Springer-Verlag, New York, 1982.
2.   J. Serrin, Gradient estimates for solutions of nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations, in "Contributions to Nonlinear Functional Analysis" (ed. E. H. Zarantonello), Academic Press (1971).
3.   S. Smale, Stable manifolds for differential equations and diffeomorphisms, Ann. Scuola Norm. Sup. Pisa Cl. Sci., 18 (1963), 97--116.

For journal abbreviations used in bibliographies, consult the list of serials in the latest Mathematical Reviews annual index.

Manuscripts typeset using AmSTeX (amsppt) or AmS-LaTeX (amsart) can move much more quickly through the production process, so these two TeX forms are strongly recommended to authors for preparing their manuscripts.

Reprints The journal does not offer reprints.

At AIMS, we do everything we can to have your article reach as many interested readers as possible, and we encourage authors to do the same. Please consider sharing a link to your article on relevant social media such as ResearchGate and LinkedIn.
