Analysis and Control of Boolean Networks: A Semi-tensor by Daizhan Cheng, Hongsheng Qi, Zhiqiang Li

By Daizhan Cheng, Hongsheng Qi, Zhiqiang Li

The Boolean community has turn into a robust device for describing and simulating mobile networks within which the weather behave in an on–off style. research and keep an eye on of Boolean Networks offers a scientific new method of the research of Boolean keep an eye on networks. the basic device during this technique is a singular matrix product referred to as the semi-tensor product (STP). utilizing the STP, a logical functionality might be expressed as a standard discrete-time linear procedure. within the mild of this linear expression, sure significant concerns referring to Boolean community topology – fastened issues, cycles, brief occasions and basins of attractors – will be simply published via a collection of formulae. This framework renders the state-space method of dynamic regulate structures acceptable to Boolean keep watch over networks. The bilinear-systemic illustration of a Boolean keep watch over community makes it attainable to enquire simple regulate difficulties together with controllability, observability, stabilization, disturbance decoupling, identity, optimum keep an eye on, and so on.

The publication is self-contained, requiring merely wisdom of linear algebra and the fundamentals of the regulate idea of linear platforms. It starts off with a brief creation to prepositional common sense and the strategies and homes of the STP and progressing through the (bi)linear expression of Boolean (control) networks to disturbance decoupling and decomposition of Boolean keep watch over structures. ultimately multi-valued good judgment is taken into account as a extra exact method of describing genuine networks and stochastic Boolean networks are touched upon. correct numerical calculations are defined in an appendix and a MATLAB® toolbox for the algorithms within the booklet will be downloaded from

Analysis and regulate of Boolean Networks may be a primary reference for researchers in structures biology, regulate, structures technology and physics. The booklet used to be built for a quick direction for graduate scholars and is acceptable for that objective. laptop scientists and logicians can also locate this publication to be of curiosity.

Best system theory books

Jerrold E Marsden Tudor Ratiu Ralph Abraham Manifolds Tensor Analysis and Applications

The aim of this booklet is to supply center fabric in nonlinear research for mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and mathematical biologists. the most target is to supply a operating wisdom of manifolds, dynamical platforms, tensors, and differential kinds. a few purposes to Hamiltonian mechanics, fluid mechanics, electromagnetism, plasma dynamics and regulate idea are given utilizing either invariant and index notation.

Convex Functional Analysis

Professors Kurdila and Zabarankin have performed an excellent task placing jointly a number of issues of useful research, degree conception, convex research and optimization. although, even if this booklet was once ready following the assumption to supply the minimal of the idea required to appreciate the primary of useful research and convex research, i think that this booklet isn't effortless for newbies (self-study).

Abductive Cognition: The Epistemological and Eco-Cognitive Dimensions of Hypothetical Reasoning

This quantity explores abductive cognition, a massive yet, a minimum of until eventually the 3rd zone of the final century, missed subject in cognition. The booklet goals at expanding wisdom approximately artistic and professional inferences. The learn of those high-levelmethods of abductive reasoning is located on the crossroads of philosophy, good judgment, epistemology, synthetic intelligence, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, animal cognition and evolutionary theories; that's, on the middle of cognitive technological know-how.

Energy and the Wealth of Nations: Understanding the Biophysical Economy

For the previous one hundred fifty years, economics has been handled as a social technological know-how during which economies are modeled as a round movement of source of revenue among manufacturers and shoppers. during this “perpetual movement” of interactions among agencies that produce and families that devour, very little accounting is given of the circulate of strength and fabrics from the surroundings and again back.

Nσ (k) ) if the indices i1 , . . , ik in the sequence are running in the following order: first, iσ (k) runs from 1 to nσ (k) , then iσ (k−1) runs from 1 to nσ (k−1) , and so on, until, finally, iσ (1) runs from 1 to nσ (1) . We now introduce some notation. Let a ∈ Z and b ∈ Z+ . As in the programming language C, we use a%b to denote the remainder of a/b, which is always nonnegative, and [t] for the largest integer that is less than or equal to t. 25] = −2. (−7)%3 = 2, 26 2 Semi-tensor Product of Matrices It is easy to see that a b + a%b.

From multi-index (λ1 , . . , λk ) in the order of Id(i1 , . . , ik ; n1 , . . , nk ) back to the single index, we have k−1 p= (λj − 1)nj +1 nj +2 · · · nk + λk . 8) j =1 The following example illustrates the conversion between different types of indices. 3, we may use different types of indices to label the elements. 1. Consider an element which is x11 in single-index form.

3 Let C ∈ Ms×t . Then, for any integer m > 0, we have W[s,m] W[m,t] = Im ⊗ C. 79) Finally, we consider how to express a matrix in stacking form and vice versa, via the semi-tensor product. 20 Let A ∈ Mm×n . 81) Vc (In ). Conversely, we can retrieve A from its row- or column-stacking form. 21 Let A ∈ Mm×n . Then A = Im ⊗ VrT (In ) Vr (A) = Im ⊗ VrT (In ) W[n,m] Vc (A). 82) As an elementary application of semi-tensor product, we consider the following example. 4 Properties of the Semi-tensor Product 47 Fig.
