Methods for serial analysis of long time series in the study of biological rhythms

Article English OPEN
Antoni Díez-Noguera;

When one is faced with the analysis of long time series, one often finds that the characteristics of circadian rhythms vary with time throughout the series. To cope with this situation, the whole series can be fragmented into successive sections which are analyzed one a... View more
