Table of Contents

Introduction to Biological Systems and Biosignals; Basic Signal Processing; Frequency Transformations; Analog Analysis in Sinusoidal Steady State; Analysis of Analog Models and Processes; Transfer and Frequency Characteristics of Analog Models; Relationships in Analog Models; Analysis of Transient Conditions ~ The Laplace Transform; Systems Modeling and Behavior; Appendix A Complex Numbers; Appendix B Laplace Transforms; Appendix D Conversion Factors

Description

Approaches such as the Transfer Function and the Fourier and the Laplace transforms are important tools for bioengineers that often considered borrowed from electrical engineering. This text allows bioengineering students and bioengineers the ability to foster a sense of ownership of these tools by providing them with a solid foundation in the concepts of linear systems analysis.

Circuits, Signals and Systems for Bioengineers guides readers through the basic engineering concepts that underlie biological systems, medical devices, biocontrol, and biosignal analysis. Material important to their study and traditionally taught in an electrical engineering service course can now be embraced by bioengineers. Instructive illustrations and MATLAB routines and examples are provided throughout the book.

All disc-based content for this title is now available on the Web.

About the Authors

John Semmlow Author

John Semmlow was a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Rutgers University and in the Department of Surgery of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School UMDNJ for 32 years. Over that period he published over 100 review journal articles and has been appointed a Fellow of the IEEE, the AIMBE, and the BMES. He retired in June of 2010, but still remains active in research, particularly cardiovascular diagnosis and human motor control. He is actively pursuing a ‘second career’ as an artist, designing and building computer controlled kinetic art: sculptures that move in interesting and intriguing ways.
