About these proceedings


This book surveys recent developments in the analysis of physiological time series. The authors, physicists and mathematicans, physiologists and medical researchers, have succeeded in presenting a review of the new field of nonlinear data analysis as needed for more refined computer-aided diagnostics. Together with the techniques, they actually propose a new approach to the problems. Practitioners may find the many applications to the cardio-respiratory system, EEG analysis, motor control and voice signals very useful.
