Stability analysis of a dynamical model representing gene regulatory networks
In this paper we perform stability analysis of a class of cyclic biological processes involving time delayed feedback. More precisely, we analyze the genetic regulatory network having nonlinearities with negative Schwarzian derivatives. We derive a set of conditions implying global stability of the genetic regulatory network under positive feedback. As a special case, we also consider homogenous genetic regulatory networks and obtain an appropriate stability condition which depends only on the parameters of the nonlinearity function. © 2012 IFAC.
