We extend a recently developed algorithm that expands the time-varying parameters onto a single set of basis functions, to multiple sets of basis functions. This feature allows the capability to capture many different dynamics that may be inherent in the system. A single set of basis functions that has its own unique characteristics can best capture(More)
We extend a recently developed time invariant (TIV) model order search criterion named the optimal parameter search algorithm (OPS) for identification of time varying (TV) autoregressive (AR) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) models. Using the TV algorithm is facilitated by the fact that expanding each TV coefficient onto a finite set of basis(More)
We introduce a new method to estimate reliable time-varying (TV) transfer functions (TFs) and TV impulse response functions. The method is based on TV autoregressive moving average models in which the TV parameters are accurately obtained using the optimal parameter search method which we have previously developed. The new method is more accurate than the(More)
In order to assess the possible time-varying properties of renal autoregulation, time-frequency and time-scaling methods were applied to renal blood flow under broad-band forced arterial blood pressure fluctuations and single-nephron renal blood flow with spontaneous oscillations obtained from normotensive (Sprague-Dawley, Wistar, and Long-Evans) rats, and(More)
Recent experimental and computational technological advancements allow for detailed temporal and spatial representations of cells. This has made the development of spatio-temporal extensions to traditional systems biology more tractable. We discuss the theoretical biochemical and biophysical fundamentals that lead to computer based spatial and dynamical(More)
For trauma and orthopedic surgery, maneuvering a mobile C-arm fluoroscope into a desired position to acquire an X-ray is a routine surgical task. The precision and ease of use of the C-arm becomes even more important for advanced interventional imaging techniques such as parallax-free X-ray image stitching. Today's standard mobile C-arms have been modeled(More)
