Provides mathematical methods and cutting edge bioinformatics challenges that are of interest to researchers who want to pursue interdisciplinary studies
Balances between theory and application, making it suitable for theoreticians and practitioners
Presents work from the top contributors throughout the world, providing a global perspective of the field
This volume covers some of the topics that are related to the rapidly growing field of biomedical informatics. In June 11–12, 2010 a workshop entitled ‘Optimization and Data Analysis in Biomedical Informatics’ was organized at The Fields Institute. Following this event, invited contributions were gathered based on the talks presented at the workshop, and additional invited chapters were solicited from leading experts. In this publication, the authors share their expertise in the form of state-of-the-art research and review chapters, bringing together researchers from different disciplines and emphasizing the value of mathematical methods in the areas of clinical sciences.
This work is targeted to applied mathematicians, computer scientists, industrial engineers, and clinical scientists who are interested in exploring emerging and fascinating interdisciplinary topics of research. It is designed to further stimulate and enhance fruitful collaborations between scientists from different disciplines.
