The idea for this volume came from the session ''Control and Dynamics of
Biomedical Systems,'' which we organized at the Fourth World Congress of Nonlinear
Analysts held in Orlando, Florida, on June 30–July 7, 2004. We invited
a number of speakers, and although not all could attend and give a talk in person,
many expressed interest in contributing a paper. Following an invitation from
Yang Kuang to put together a volume on the topic as a special issue of Mathematical
Biosciences and Engineering, some papers presented at the session were
submitted immediately, and others were contributed after the Congress.
