In this tutorial we present recently developed nonlinear methods of cardiovascular physics and show their potentials to clinically relevant problems in cardiology. The first part describes methods of cardiovascular physics, especially data analysis and modeling of noninvasively measured biosignals, with the aim to improve clinical diagnostics and to improve the understanding of cardiovascular regulation. Applications of nonlinear data analysis and modeling tools are various and outlined in the
