2017 Complexity and Nonlinearity in Cardiovascular Signals  
Methods from nonlinear dynamics have shown new insights into alterations of the cardiovascular system under various physiological and pathological conditions, and thus providing additional prognostic information. In this chapter prominent complexity methods of non-linear dynamics as symbolic dynamics, Poincaré plot analyses, and compression entropy are introduced and their algorithmic implementations and application examples in clinical trials are provided. Especially, we will give their basic
