Wiley, Aug 4, 2000 - Science - 276 pages
For the first time, eleven experts in the fields of signalprocessing and biomedical engineering have contributed to anedition on the newest theories and applications of fuzzy logic,neural networks, and algorithms in biomedicine. NonlinearBiomedical Signal Processing, Volume I provides comprehensivecoverage of nonlinear signal processing techniques. In the lastdecade, theoretical developments in the concept of fuzzy logic haveled to several new approaches to neural networks. This compilationdelivers plenty of real-world examples for a variety ofimplementations and applications of nonlinear signal processingtechnologies to biomedical problems. Included here are discussionsthat combine the various structures of Kohenen, Hopfield, andmultiple-layer "designer" networks with other approaches to producehybrid systems. Comparative analysis is made of methods of genetic,back-propagation, Bayesian, and other learning algorithms.

Topics covered include:

  • Uncertainty management
  • Analysis of biomedical signals
  • A guided tour of neural networks
  • Application of algorithms to EEG and heart rate variabilitysignals
  • Event detection and sample stratification in genomicsequences
  • Applications of multivariate analysis methods to measureglucose concentration
Nonlinear Biomedical Signal Processing, Volume I is avaluable reference tool for medical researchers, medical facultyand advanced graduate students as well as for practicing biomedicalengineers. Nonlinear Biomedical Signal Processing, Volume Iis an excellent companion to Nonlinear Biomedical SignalProcessing, Volume II: Dynamic Analysis and Modeling.

About the author (2000)

About the Editor Metin Akay is currently an assistant professor at Dartmouth College. A noted speaker, editor, and author, Dr. Akay has spent several years conducting research in the areas of fuzzy neural networks and signal processing, wavelet transform, and detection and estimation theory. His biomedical research areas include the autonomic nervous system, maturation, respiratory-related evoked response, noninvasive detection of coronary artery disease, and estimation of cardiac output. Dr. Akay is the founding series editor of the IEEE Press Series on Biomedical Engineering. In 1997 he received the prestigious Early Career Achievement Award from the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). He is the program chair of both the annual IEEE EMBS Conference and Summer School for 2001. Dr. Akay has published several papers in the field and authored or coauthored eleven books, including Time Frequency and Wavelets in Biomedical Signal Processing (IEEE Press, 1998) and Nonlinear Biomedical Signal Processing, Volume II: Dynamic Analysis and Modeling (IEEE Press, 2000). He holds two U.S. patents.
