paper on water regulation of human body

Post by Gökhan Dogan » Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:18 pm

I thought people reading this forum might find a new paper by Ozge Karanfil and Yaman Barlas interesting. The paper is about water regulation of human body and related disorders. It was published at Operations Research. Here's the full citation:

Title: A Dynamic Simulator for the Management of Disorders of the Body Water Homeostasis
Authors: Ozge Karanfil, Yaman Barlas
Journal: Operations Research, Vol. 56, No. 6, November–December 2008, pp. 1474–1492

The paper has an interesting model calibrated with data from the literature and turned into an interactive game to test policies to be used against disorders.

Best,

Gokhan
