Brunel hosts 2nd European non-linear analysis techniques workshop

Scientists, clinicians and doctoral students working with biological time-series data can now learn how to apply the latest analysis techniques from the fields of biomechanics to their own research.

Leading biomechanics expert Professor Nicholas Stergiouwill deliver a three-day workshop on non-linear analysis techniques at Brunel University London. The course will provide tools to interrogate and tease out potential insights into biomechanical data.

Lecturer in biomechanics at Brunel University London, Dr Amir Mohagheghi, said: “The need for an effective new set of tools to assess biomechanical time series has never been higher. We are delighted to welcome Dr Stergiou to share his insights and expertise with course delegates.”

Dr Stergiou will take delegates through the latest thinking, methods, benefits and challenges of non-linear approaches. He will cover techniques useful now and throughout academic or clinical careers.

For example, Lyapunov exponent that characterises the rate of separation of infinitesimally close trajectories; approximate entropy that can be used to quantify the amount of regularity and the unpredictability of fluctuations over time-series data; correlation dimension, a measure of the dimensionality of the space occupied by a set of random points; and fractal analysis, which finds patterns in natural phenomena will be introduced.

Places on the workshop are limited. To ensure a good and productive working environment, the number of delegates is capped at 25 people.

The 2nd European workshop on non-linear analysis techniques, delivered by Professor Nicholas Stergiou, University of Nebraska Omaha, runs from Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th June 2015. For workshop registration and enquiries, visit here.
