TIME DELAY NEURAL NETWORKS MODELLING OF HEART RHYTHMS

The Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal could be modelled using neural networks models because of their universal approximation properties. This study considered neural networks models trained with ECG data, so that the trained models could then predict ECG for the purpose of diagnosis and prevention of cardiac troubles.

SIMULATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF APPROXIMATE SINE WAVE INVERTER FOR SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SUPPLY FOR DOMESTIC APPLIANCES

The concept in this paper simulate and implemented an approximate sine wave inverter for sustainable energy supply for home appliances. Renewable Power Generation (RPG) is a promising alternative source of energy. These sources of energy; solar, wind, bio-energy are available in nature and readily available to harness. Thus, there is incompatibility between the output of these energy sources and the conventional power supply input of most appliances which are in D.C and A.C respectively.

PHENOTYPE ANALYSIS AS PLANT SELECTION STRATEGY IN DRUG DISCOVERY FROM PLANTS FOR OBESITY

It is conceivable that chemical constituents in plants are linked through genomics and proteomics to observable phenotypes such as plant height, shape of leaf, colour of leaves, flowers among others. Mathematical models including some of these phenotypes may be used to predict plants with potential activity against a particular disease. This hypothesis was tested, with obesity as target.
