A survey on piecewise-linear models of regulatory dynamical systems

Recent developments in understanding the various regulatory systems, especially the developments in biology and genomics, stimulated an interest in modelling such systems. Hybrid systems, originally developed for process control applications, provide advances in modelling such systems. A particular class of hybrid systems which are relatively simpler to analyze mathematically but still capable of demonstrating the essential features of many non-linear dynamical systems is piecewise-linear systems. Implementation of piecewise-linear systems for modelling of regulatory dynamical systems requires different considerations depending on the status of the problem. In this work we considered three different cases. Firstly, we consider the inferential modelling problem based on the empirical observations and study the discrete piecewise-linear system, whose inverse problem is solvable under some assumptions. Secondly, we considered the problem of obtaining some complex regulatory systems by tractable piecewise-linear formulations and study the qualitative dynamic features of the systems and their piecewise-linear models. Finally, we considered Boolean delay equations for building abstract models of regulatory systems, which might be the simplest models demonstrating the essential qualitative features of our interest underlying adaption, learning and memorization.


On the smoothness of solutions of impulsive autonomous systems
Akhmet, Marat (Elsevier BV, 2005-01-01)
The aim of this paper is to investigate dependence of solutions on parameters for nonlinear autonomous impulsive differential equations. We will specify what continuous, differentiable and analytic dependence of solutions on parameters is, define higher order derivatives of solutions with respect to parameters and determine conditions for existence of such derivatives. The theorem of analytic dependence of solutions on parameters is proved.
Modern tools for the time-discrete dynamics and optimization of gene-environment networks
DEFTERLİ, ÖZLEM; Fuegenschuh, Armin; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2011-12-01)
In this study, we discuss the models of genetic regulatory systems, so-called gene-environment networks. The dynamics of such kind of systems are described by a class of time-continuous ordinary differential equations having a general form (E) over dot = M(E)E, where E is a vector of gene-expression levels and environmental factors and M(E) is the matrix having functional entries containing unknown parameters to be optimized. Accordingly, time-discrete versions of that model class are studied and improved b...
Multinormed semifinite von Neumann algebras, unbounded operators and conditional expectations
Dosi, Anar (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-01)
The present paper is devoted to classification of multinormed W*-algebras in terms of their bounded parts. We obtain a precise description of the bornological predual of a multinormed W*-algebra, which is reduced to a multinormed noncommutative L-1-space in the semifinite case. A multinormed noncommutative L-2-space is obtained as the union space of a commutative domain in a semifinite von Neumann algebra. Multinormed W*-algebras of type I are described as locally bounded decomposable (unbounded) operators ...
New approaches to regression by generalized additive models and continuous optimization for modern applications in finance, science and technology
Taylan, P.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Beck, A. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-10-01)
Generalized additive models belong to modern techniques frorn statistical learning, and are applicable in many areas of prediction, e.g. in financial mathamatics, computational biology, medicine, chemistry and environmental protection. In these models, the expectation of response is linked to the predictors via a link function. These models are fitted through local scoring algorithm using it scatterplot smoother as building blocks proposed by Hastie and Tibshirani (1987). In this article, we first give it s...
An algorithm to analyze stability of gene-expression patterns
Gebert, J; Latsch, M; Pickl, SW; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Wunschiers, R (Elsevier BV, 2006-05-01)
Many problems in the field of computational biology consist of the analysis of so-called gene-expression data. The successful application of approximation and optimization techniques, dynamical systems, algorithms and the utilization of the underlying combinatorial structures lead to a better understanding in that field. For the concrete example of gene-expression data we extend an algorithm, which exploits discrete information. This is lying in extremal points of polyhedra, which grow step by step, up to a...
