Modeling and control of physiological systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The aim of physiological modeling and control is to study, model and understand biological processes, then to apply identification and control strategies on it as a system. It is a big challenge to combine individualized control therapies with physiological model-based robust control methods. This requires a combination of mathematical knowledge (numeric symbolic computations), control engineering (system identification, control theory), computer engineering (formal methods, software development and testing) and biomedical engineering (physiological modeling. The paper discusses current challenges of this topic by three concrete examples: diabetes, tumor control and depth of anesthesia.
