Fuzzy Logic Strategy for Solving an Optimal Control Problem of Glucose and Insulin in Diabetic Human


This paper aims at the development of an approach integrating the fuzzy logic strategy for a glucose and insulin in diabetic human optimal control problem. To test the efficiency of this strategy, the author proposes a numerical comparison with the indirect method. The results are in good agreement with experimental data.
