Optimal Control: New Trends in Applications to Bioprocesses aims to bridge the gap between mathematical optimization methods to solve problems in dynamical systems and bioprocess modeling which involves various techniques to build mathematical models for applications in the bio-production of chemical and pharmaceutical products, covering different length and time scales, from single cells, to cell population, to bioreactors. The two fields are natural partners, however there is a disconnect and literature gap between the mathematical theory of optimal control and the optimization of systems arising in the field of bioprocesses engineering.
- Provides optimal control techniques applicable to bioprocessing and biotechnology
- Includes application to waste water treatment, bio-gas optimization and bioremediation problems
- Presents case studies from real-world examples
Graduate students and 1st year PhDs or other early career researchers in optimal control theory with a background in applied math and interested in studying bioprocesses or biological systems. Despite the intention to make the work accessible, the math is at a high level, and only the more mathematically-inclined practitioner / engineer interested in solving bioprocess and biotechnology problems are likely to purchase the title
