Non-stationary signals are generally found in nature and any information concerning such signals cannot easily be described or predicted. The extraction, analysis and classification of these signals are complicated by different types of noise. As any false results could possibly have dire consequences, the robustness of tools used for these purposes in certain fields is of course vital.
With this in mind, the authors of this book present here original methods and algorithms for extracting information from non-stationary signals such as heart sounds and power electric signals. The methods proposed focus on the time–frequency (TF) domain, most notably on the Stockwell transform for the feature extraction process and the identification of signatures.
The advanced signal processing tools and techniques presented in this book and the originality of the authors’ contributions will prove very useful for those involved in engineering and research in the field of signal processing, as well as for professionals in industry and healthcare.
