Impulsive Mathematical Modeling of Endocrine Regulation demonstrates recently-developed mathematical models portraying pulse-modulated regulation in endocrine systems. These constructs appear in studies of the endocrine loops that are controlled in pulsatile manner by the brain, primarily by the hypothalamus. The relatively slow dynamics of the hormone kinetics admixed with fast neural signaling are difficult to understand without computational nonlinear analysis and give rise to challenging problems in theory of hybrid systems. This book takes a pragmatic engineering stance on the problem by starting with the necessary theoretical background on the analysis tools, progressing through a number of mathematical models of increasing complexity, and illustrating the feasibility and fidelity of the mathematical constructs on actual biological data. Compared to a commonplace, theory-oriented book on dynamical systems and control which typically presents a group of design or analysis techniques, Impulsive Mathematical Modeling of Endocrine Regulation originates from a real-life problem of fundamental value and introduces mathematical tools that have specifically been devised to solve it.

  • Presents results on impulsive mathematical models of endocrine regulation in a systematic, comprehensive, and accessible manner
  • Introduces researchers and engineers specializing in dynamical systems to a rapidly-growing topic
  • Provides biomedical engineering and biological researchers with mathematical modeling and analysis tools for continuous systems, using episodic feedback exemplified by non-basal endocrine regulation
