Qualitative theory, particularly of differential equations is a mature research area, yet driven by the broad applications in many fields, such as physics, engineering and science we have seen rapid developments in recent years.
The present topical issue aims to provide a platform for researchers to report their recent research in this area. We cordially invite researchers to contribute their original research articles as well as review articles that not only are devoted to interpreting and understanding the underlying differential dynamic systems, generated by differential equations and the ones with time delay and/or impulsive terms, but also include new theoretical developments suitable for novel applications of solving real world problems.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
• Qualitative theory and bifurcation theory of differential equations
• Periodic or almost periodic solutions of differential equations
• Asymptotic analysis of differential equations
• Applications of differential equations in physical mathematics and mathematical biology


Before submission authors should carefully read the Instructions for Authors, which are located at

Manuscripts should be written in LATEX, AMS-TEX, AMS-LATEX. We do not accept papers in Plain TEX format. If, additionally, a PDF file is supplied, the peer review process will be speed up. Authors are encouraged to submit the final version of the paper using the De Gruyter Open LATEX template.

All submissions to the Topical Issue must be made electronically at
and will undergo the standard single-blind peer review system. When entering your submission choose the option “Topical Issue AQTDE”.

Submissions for the special issue are now open. Individual papers will be reviewed and published online as they arrive.
