Better Living through Phase and Isostable Reduction: Professor Jeffrey Moehlis' research featured in SIAM News


Friday, October 30, 2015

Research by Professor Jeff Moehlis and his graduate student Dan Wilson was recently featured on SIAM News

"The traditional boundaries between engineering and the life sciences are rapidly blurring as interdisciplinary researchers explore fundamental and practical questions in biology and medicine. A particularly fruitful avenue for such explorations uses classical phase reduction technique and a related technique we recently proposed, called isostable reduction, to rigorously derive simplified equations. Optimal control theory can then be applied to these simplified equations to find novel potential treatments for medical ailments such as Parkinson’s disease and cardiac arrhythmias."
