Analysis and Control of Boolean Networks presents a systematic new approach to the investigation of Boolean control networks. The fundamental tool in this approach is a novel matrix product called the semi-tensor product (STP). Using the STP, a logical function can be expressed as a conventional discrete-time linear system. In the light of this linear expression, certain major issues concerning Boolean network topology – fixed points, cycles, transient times and basins of attractors – can be easily revealed by a set of formulae. This framework renders the state-space approach to dynamic control systems applicable to Boolean control networks. The bilinear-systemic representation of a Boolean control network makes it possible to investigate basic control problems including controllability, observability, stabilization, disturbance decoupling etc.
Motivated by the Human Genome Project, a new view of biology, called systems biology, is emerging . Systems biology does not investigate individual genes, proteins or cells in isolation. Rather, it studies the behavior and relationships of all of the cells, proteins, DNA and RNA in a biological system called a cellular network. The most active networks may be those associated with genetic regulation, which regulate the growth, replication, and death of cells in response to changes in the environment.

Drupal Development Tricks for Designers
In the first guide, Planning and Managing Drupal Projects, we walked through the process
of planning a site, figuring out the user experience, and working with content
architecture. In the second, Design and Prototyping in Drupal, we started looking at
how to create solid, user-centered design that works for a...
Dependency Structures and Lexicalized Grammars: An Algebraic Approach
This book reports the major results of roughly four years of doctoral research. Among the many people who have contributed to it, there are some to whom I owe a particularly large debt of gratitude.
Since 2002, FoLLI has awarded an annual prize for outstanding dissertations in the fields of Logic, Language and Information. This...
