Early detection of pulmonary nodules is extremely important for the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. In this study, a new classification approach for pulmonary nodules from CT imagery is presented by using hybrid features. Four different methods are introduced for the proposed system. The overall detection performance is evaluated using various(More)
In this work, a new signal processing method was proposed in order to predict externally applied forces to human hands by deriving a relationship between the surface electromyographic (SEMG) signals and experimentally known forces. This relationship was investigated by analyzing the spectral features of the SEMG signals. SEMG signals were recorded from(More)
We consider the estimation of time-varying channels for Cooperative Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (CO-OFDM) systems. In the next generation mobile wireless communication systems, significant Doppler frequency shifts are expected the channel frequency response to vary in time. A time-invariant channel is assumed during the transmission of a(More)
We present a fractional Gabor expansion on a general, non-rectangular time-frequency lattice. The traditional Gabor expansion represents a signal in terms of time and frequency shifted basis functions, called Gabor logons. This constant-bandwidth analysis results in a fixed, rectangular time frequency plane tiling. Many of the practical signals require a(More)
In this paper, we present a connection between the discrete Gabor expansion and the evolutionary spectral theory. Including a scale parameter in the Gabor expansion, we obtain a new representation for deterministic signals that is analogous to the Wold-Cramer decomposition for non-stationary processes. The energy distribution resulting from the expansion is(More)
