System Theory and Practical Applications of Biomedical Signals


The impetus for this book was a conversation I had with my friend, Dr. Jenq-Neng Hwang, during the 1996 ICASSP conference. When I asked why few applications were presented, Jenq-Neng replied that most professors do not have access to data, especially the physiologic data in which I am interested. Later that year, I saw an ad in EMBS Magazine soliciting book proposals, and decided to write a book that could serve to bridge the gap between industrial medical instrumentation applications and academic system theory.

This book is intended as a textbook for a system theory applications course, within the Medical Instrumentation Course Series of a biomedical engineering/bioengineering graduate program. It may also be used as a reference book for industrial medical instrumentation.
