Dynamic modeling and analysis have broad relevance to many biological processes and biomedical applications, such as heart dynamics, DNA/RNA, cell mobility, surgical robotics, and so on. Various analytical and numerical techniques have been developed to qualitatively and quantitatively study dynamics associated with design, diagnosis, and control in these problems. The main focus of this special issue is to promote the exchange of new ideas, methods (primarily analytical and numerical) and their use in studies of nonlinear phenomena, computational modeling, dynamic analysis, and control for clinical diagnosis, patient health monitoring, drug administration, and bio-signal assisted rehabilitation. Recent years have seen a significant increase in research activities in these areas within diverse specialties including mechanical, electrical, biomedical, and computational engineering. However, there is a lack of integrated approaches to biomedical research from a dynamical systems point of view. This special issue calls for latest innovative and integrated approaches to develop a deeper understanding of the dynamics of biological and biomedical systems using techniques from nonlinear dynamics and computational fields.
