Abstract

System theory is a powerful mathematical technique to model complex entities which cannot be easily described in terms of a traditional deterministic model. Practical difficulties posed by this approach when applied to biological and clinical problems are discussed. A brief primer on system theory is given, especially in regard to mathematical foundations of control theory. An attempt to apply such a theoretical approach to the connection between psoriasis and neuropeptide levels (which have been studied in detail in our School) is discussed, together with future possible application of system theory to cutaneous diseases.
