Optimal Impulsive Control for Cancer Therapy by João P. Belfo
English | EPUB | 2021 | 108 Pages | ISBN : 3030504875 | 6.3 MB
This Springer brief discusses the use of control engineering methods to plan a cancer therapy which tends to reduce tumour size in patients, striking a balance that minimizes the toxic effects of the treatment. The authors address the design and computation of impulsive control therapies, a methodology previously underexplored in the application of control methods to medical modelling. This allows simulation of such discrete events as taking a pill rather than relying on the supply of therapy being continuous and steady.
