Abstract or Summary
  • A compartmental model of the immune system is simulated. Chapter I discusses the importance of such a model, reviews past immune system models, and summaries the immunological theory the model is based upon. In Chapter II, the compartmental representation of the immune system is developed from immunological and physiological theory. A simplified system of three compartments, the blood, the spleen, and the lymph and lymph nodes is derived. The mathematical model is derived in Chapter III based upon the simplified compartmental system, and immune system kinetics. The simulation results are compared to literature data in Chapter IV, and it is concluded that modeling and simulation of the immune system may result in significant advances in immunological theory.
