Abstract : This is the Final Scientific Report on a Satellite Symposium on the mathematical modeling of circadian systems which was held on June 21, 1981 in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Association for the Psychophysiological Study of Sleep in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The purpose of the satellite symposium was to present and critically review recently developed mathematical models of the circadian timing system, with particular emphasis on human sleep-wake organization, as designed by various investigators from both the United States and abroad who would be invited to participate.
