Computer Aided Chemical Engineering is a book series which publishes theme volumes and conference proceedings in the application of computing and systems technology to chemical engineering problems. Several major areas are represented in the series, including modeling, numerical analysis and simulation; mathematical programming(optimization); cyberinfrastructure, informatics and intelligent systems; process and product synthesis/design; process dynamics, control and monitoring; abnormal events management and process safety; plant operations, integration, planning/scheduling and supply chain; enterprise-wide management andtechnology-driven policy making and domain applications (molecular, biological, pharmaceutical, food, energy, and environmental systems engineering). For information about the series or to submit a proposal, please contact the Series Editors or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at email@example.com.

Quantitative Systems Pharmacology: Models and Model-Based Systems with Applications, Volume 42, provides a quantitative approach to problem-solving that is targeted to engineers. The book gathers the contributions of doctors, pharmacists, biologists, and chemists who give key information on the elements needed to model a complex machine like the human body. It presents information on diagnoses, administration and release of therapeutics, distribution metabolism and excretion of drugs, compartmental pharmacokinetics, physiologically-based pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, identifiability of models, numerical methods for models identification, design of experiments, in vitro and in vivo models, and more.
As the pharma community is progressively acknowledging that a quantitative and systematic approach to drug administration, release, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics is highly recommended to understand the mechanisms and effects of drugs, this book is a timely resource.
