Summary and Info
Biomedical Applications of Control Engineering is a lucidly written textbook for graduate control engineering and biomedical engineering students as well as for medical practitioners who want to get acquainted with quantitative methods. It is based on decades of experience both in control engineering and clinical practice. The book begins by reviewing basic concepts of system theory and the modeling process. It then goes on to discuss control engineering application areas like: Different models for the human operator,dosage and timing optimization in oral drug administration, measuring symptoms of and optimal dopaminergic therapy in Parkinson’s disease, measurement and control of blood glucose levels both naturally and by means of external controllers in diabetes, and control of depth of anaesthesia using inhalational anaesthetic agents like sevoflurane using both fuzzy and state feedback controllers. All chapters include three types of exercises constructed to: Review the concepts discussed in the chapter, allow the reader to apply the newly acquired techniques and subject related facts on simple problems, and indicate directions for open ended theses projects. Appendices on Optimal Control and Fuzzy Control meant as refreshers on those control engineering techniques used throughout the book are also included.Table of ContentsCoverControl Problemsof Discrete-Time Dynamical SystemsISBN 9783642380570 ISBN 9783642380587PrefaceContentsChapter 1 IntroductionChapter 2 Input/Output Map and Performance Function for Control Problems 2.1 Input Response Maps (Input/Output Maps with Causality) 2.2 Performance Function for Control Problems 2.2.1 Least Square Method 2.3 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 3 Control Problems of Linear Systems 3.1 Basic Facts about Linear Systems 3.2 Finite Dimensional Linear Systems 3.3 Control Problems 3.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 4 Control Problems of So-Called Linear System 4.1 Basic Facts about So-Called Linear Systems 4.2 Finite Dimensional So-Called Linear Systems 4.3 Control Problems 4.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 5 Control Problems of Almost Linear System 5.1 Basic Facts about Almost Linear Systems 5.2 Finite Dimensional Almost Linear Systems 5.3 Control Problems 5.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 6 Control Problems of Pseudo Linear System 6.1 Basic Facts about Pseudo Linear Systems 6.2 Finite Dimensional Pseudo Linear Systems 6.3 Control Problems 6.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 7 Control Problems of Affine Dynamical System 7.1 Basic Facts about Affine Dynamical Systems 7.2 Finite Dimensional Affne Dynamical Systems 7.3 Control Problems 7.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksChapter 8 Control Problems of Linear Representation Systems 8.1 Basic Facts about Linear Representation Systems 8.2 Finite Dimensional Linear Representation Systems 8.3 Control Problems 8.4 Historical Notes and Concluding RemarksReferencesIndex
