Growth Models.- A Game-Theoretic Evolution Model.- Four Models of Optimal Control in Medicine.- A Mathematical Model of Hemodialysis.
From the reviews: "The impact of mathematical modeling and analysis on biological applications has been significant. But the area of optimization is just beginning to be applied to biosystems, and this book illustrates some possible applications and techniques. ... An undergraduate student interested in population models and game theory could benefit from this book. ... This book would be a valuable source for game theory and examples of optimization of parameters, and for optimal control ... ." (Suzanne Lenhart, SIAM Review, Vol. 50 (3), 2008) "The book comprises four lengthy chapters, with liberal use of sub-sections to make the whole more easily digestible. ... The book is clearly laid out ... . Each chapter has a short list of references ... . For those who seek a detailed introduction into mathematical modelling of biological systems this book would be a most useful resource." (B. Spedding, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 60 (2), 2009)
