Experiments show that the pressure and flow regulation of the functional unit of the kidney (the nephron) can exhibit complex dynamical behaviors. The purpose of the project is to develop a physiologically satisfactory model that can account for clinical observations and reproduce the period-doubling and chaotic dynamics observed under certain circumstances. The characteristic swallow-tail structure of overlapping period-doubling and saddle-node bifurcations is examined by means of one- and two-dimensional bifurcation analyses.
