treatment, in order to achieve a desired drug concentration in the bloodstream over time.
We will use discrete time, t = 1, 2, . . . , T , representing hours (say). There will be K treatments,
administered at known times 1 = τ1 < τ2 < · · · < τK < T . We have m drug formulations; each
treatment consists of a mi...
