A model of angiogenesis by hybrid systems with delay on the piecewise constant part

An important approach towards understanding the cancer dynamics is the modeling of angiogenesis process. There have been several attempts to model this process. Among them angiogenesis models with time delays, caused by the physical distance between the tumor and the vessel, are the most realistic ones. Recent studies have suggested that those delays can cause oscillatory behavior in the angiogenesis process. In this work we employed piecewise linear hybrid systems with delay on the piecewise constant part. Our approach is based on piecewise linearization of the system behavior where the delays occur at threshold crossings and state transitions. Piecewise linear systems with a single threshold for each variable are useful in approximating and modeling the dynamical systems especially when the model might need to be calibrated by the observations. Therefore, we used piecewise linear systems where the delays are introduced in piecewise constant part of the equations. Our approach allows tractable approximation of the angiogenesis process with possible advances of incorporating more variables, involving the effect of some possible external inputs, and possible adjustment or correction of parameters by observations.


A mathematical modeling and approximation of gene expression patterns by linear and quadratic regulatory relations and analysis of gene networks
Yılmaz, Fatma Bilge; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Department of Scientific Computing (2004)
This thesis mainly concerns modeling, approximation and inference of gene regulatory dynamics on the basis of gene expression patterns. The dynamical behavior of gene expressions is represented by a system of ordinary di erential equations. We introduce a gene-interaction matrix with some nonlinear entries, in particular, quadratic polynomials of the expression levels to keep the system solvable. The model parameters are determined by using optimization. Then, we provide the time-discrete approximation of o...
A comparative study of autoregressive neural network hybrids
Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba (2005-06-01)
Many researchers have argued that combining many models for forecasting gives better estimates than single time series models. For example, a hybrid architecture comprising an autoregressive integrated moving average model (ARIMA) and a neural network is a well-known technique that has recently been shown to give better forecasts by taking advantage of each model's capabilities. However, this assumption carries the danger of underestimating the relationship between the model's linear and non-linear componen...
A Microwave Imaging Model for Biomedical Applications
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2017-07-14)
A microwave imaging model is presented for detection of breast cancer tissues by combining the finite element method and the transformation electromagnetics approach. An inverse scattering problem is formulated based on genetic optimization algorithm, and its expensive cost function evaluations are accelerated by using the transformation electromagnetics approach, which allows using a uniform or rectangular mesh even when irregular geometries are present inside the domain. Simulation results are demonstrate...
An integrated, dynamic model for cardiovascular and pulmonary systems
Yılmaz, Neval A; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis an integrated, dynamic model for cardiovascular and respiratory systems has been developed. Models of cardiopulmonary system, airway mechanics and gas exchange that preexisted in literature have been reviewed, modified and combined. Combined model composes the systemic and pulmonary circulations, left/right ventricles, tissue/lung compartments, airway/lung mechanics and gas transportation. Airway resistance is partitioned into three parts (upper, middle, small airways). A collapsible airways ...
A numerical study on dependent absorption and scattering by interacting nano-sized particles
Dönmezer, Fatma Nazlı; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
Understanding and manipulating nanosized particles is crucial for the advancement of nanotechnology research. Dependent light scattering of noble metals can be used to achieve new material responses that can be used in different applications. Dependent light scattering of nanoparticles allows the understanding of orientation and location of closely positioned particles. Besides, dependently scattering metallic particles create significantly enhanced near fields and high absorption rates when excited at thei...
