2015 - 2016 updating is in progress


The primary goal of this site has been to accelerate the search process when looking for references (bibliography) on noise, both in electronics and biology. The on-hand data base being non-exhaustive, it is expected that if someone cannot find exactly what he/she needs, at least the overall time will be considerably reduced.

Equally, this site can be viewed as a tribute to individuals who contributed during the 20th century, much affected by World War I and World War II, to the progress of random signals and noise theory. The list of their names is too long to be presented here.

It has also been my intention to offer a welcome gift to students, researchers, engineers and educators entering into the attractive but difficult area of electronic noise. This kind of noise is largely destructive. In contrast, recent advance in biology proved that bio-noise has mostly a positive role in the evolution of life systems. This interesting property may explain why these rather far away domains are put together on this site.

I should like to acknowledge the contribution of all people who supported this work in various stages, helped me to access their own (or team) publications, evaluate the project and formulate valuable suggestions, provided assistance in HTML language or kindly give me permission to use figures from their publications. In alphabetical order, I should like to express my gratitude to:

Professor Gilles DAMBRINE, IEMN University of Lille 1, France

Lecturer Sylvain FERUGLIO, University P. & M. Curie, Paris, France

Professor Heiner LINKE, Lund University, Sweden

Professor Florin POPENTIU, University of Oradea, UNESCO Dept., Romania

Software Engineer Daniela RADU, Toshiba Medical Visualization Systems Europe

Professor Shin-ya TAKANE, Osaka Sangyo University, Japan  

Ph.D. Alexandre VASILESCU (my son).

Last but not least, my gratitude goes to all IEEE people that decided, developed and update the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Their efforts enormously improved efficiency in collecting data.
