Course Aims

In this class you will learn to model and control biomedical systems and processes. The first part of the course introduces specific dynamic system concepts (such as linearity, nonlinearity, time-varing) for the quantitative study of biomedical systems. In the second part, you will design appropriate control systems to maintain desired process behaviour. In many biomedical systems, complex control loops already exist to maintain homeostasis and enable interesting function. It is necessary to create models for these existing biomedical systems and then to identify appropriate means to judiciously interrupt the circuits to change the system’s behaviour.
