Abstract

Complex systems exist in many aspects of nature and society and a ect our daily life signi cantly. Computational mod- eling is a powerful tool to complement theories and exper- iments for leveraging the knowledge on the fundamental mechanisms in complex systems. Discrete methods account for a large portion in the modeling of complex systems, whose advantages over traditional continuum methods are, for example, mathematical concision, easy implementation, and high parallelization. us, it is highly necessary to track the latest progress on the discrete simulation of complex systems. is special issue consists of papers on the development and application of discrete approaches in modeling of complex systems. Although the selected papers in this special issue cannot represent all aspects of the discrete simulation of complex systems, they stand at the frontier of the area and we are pleased to share these valuable papers with readers. In the paper entitled “Dynamic Modeling and Optimal Control for Complex Systems with Statistical Trajectory” L. Guo et al. proposed a novel discrete-time nonlinear working state class dynamic mathematical model through -means cluster method for sintering machines.
