Design of Digital IIR filters with the Advantages of Model Order Reduction Technique
In this paper, a new model order reduction
phenomenon is introduced at the design stage of linear phase digital
IIR filter. The complexity of a system can be reduced by adopting the
model order reduction method in their design. In this paper a mixed
method of model order reduction is proposed for linear IIR filter. The
proposed method employs the advantages of factor division technique
to derive the reduced order denominator polynomial and the reduced
order numerator is obtained based on the resultant denominator
polynomial. The order reduction technique is used to reduce the delay
units at the design stage of IIR filter. The validity of the proposed
method is illustrated with design example in frequency domain and
stability is also examined with help of nyquist plot.

ECG Analysis using Nature Inspired Algorithm
This paper presents an algorithm based on the
wavelet decomposition, for feature extraction from the ECG signal
and recognition of three types of Ventricular Arrhythmias using
neural networks. A set of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT)
coefficients, which contain the maximum information about the
arrhythmias, is selected from the wavelet decomposition. After that a
novel clustering algorithm based on nature inspired algorithm (Ant
Colony Optimization) is developed for classifying arrhythmia types.
The algorithm is applied on the ECG registrations from the MIT-BIH
arrhythmia and malignant ventricular arrhythmia databases. We
applied Daubechies 4 wavelet in our algorithm. The wavelet
decomposition enabled us to perform the task efficiently and
produced reliable results.
