Full text not available from this repository.


The book is about mathematical modeling, analysis and control of the immune system and disease dynamics. The purpose of the book is the practical application of mathematics to immunology and medicine to establish a basis for more effective treatment, to provide a tutorial systematic description of how the immune system controls diseases and present several significant examples such as malignant tumor dynamics and control, viral hepatitis, etc.

The book is multidisciplinary in content, with the intended readers including biomathematicians, biostatisticians, bioengineers, immunologists, system scientists, control engineers, applied mathematicians, biologists, and physicists.

The book is an integration of immunological principles, mathematical models, computer simulations, and methods of analysis. The integrated multidisciplinary development from basic principles to complex disease analysis is quite unique. The rigorous mathematical approach to problem solving is unique in this field as is the analysis of clinical data which is so rarely found in theoretical biology books.
