Title: MATHEMATICS IN HEALTH CARE WITH APPLICATIONS
Other Titles: MATEMATICA PER LA SANITA' CON APPLICAZIONI
Authors: PAULON, LUCA

Abstract: The Author aims to show how mathematics can be useful in supporting key activities in a hospital, including: noninvasive measurement of a patient’s status (see chapter 1), evaluation of quality of services (see chapter 2), business and clinical administration (see chapter 3), and diagnosis and prognosis (see chapter 4). Such applications suggest the development of innovative projects to improve health care processes, services and systems. In this way, mathematics can be a very important tool for technological and societal development.
Description: This thesis is a collection of health care applications of mathematical methods and models from various disciplines of mathematics. In this way, the Author intends to show the necessity and benefits of multidisciplinary knowledge as well as the importance of an attitude to drive innovation by means of mathematical tools, using probability calculus, numerical analysis, operations research, and other methods. The integration of mathematics and real-life problems can be very effective. Advanced mathematics tools allow problems to be solved in innovative ways. From a theoretical point of view, each application may suggest if and how (in what direction) the theory on which it is based can be extended. This effort can result not only in the publication of scientific papers but also in the awarding of grants to continue such research activities. This thesis is a proof of these claims. It is structured as stand-alone chapters that share a common structure: an introduction, background and algorithms sections and a target application.
