This paper proposes a method to determine the temporal-dependencies concerning the parameters of time variable systems. The method utilizes sensitivity functions. The case of the switching-regime systems which have parameters whose values change from an operating regime to another will be investigated. Using the proposed method the transient response of the(More)

As a result of improving lifesaving technologies, the risk of nosocomial infections increases in ICUs. Utilization of epidemiological methods is recommended for the detection and follow up of nosocomial infections. AIMS(More)
In order to determine a suitable model of the control function of the cardiovascular system (CVS) in the case of a constant effort, a state feedback controller obtained through a pole allocation technique is proposed. As starting point, a well known model of the CVS with a similar controller, developed as a solution of an optimal linear quadratic problem,(More)
