Abstract
We propose a Bessel kernel based time frequency distri-
bution technique for identification and tracking of spec-
trum of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in ECG. The algorithm
shows a good frequency resolution and a low RMS error
even when the noise dominates the signal which is criti-
cal for detecting the low amplitude AF activity within the
ECG. In comparison with other time frequency distribu-
tions, the Bessel kernel reduces cross terms between fre-
quencies in the multi-component ECG signal. Superiority
of the Bessel kernel method over the short time Fourier
transform (STFT) is demonstrated using a frequency mod-
ulated sinusoidal model and using real AF data. At low
signal to noise levels the Bessel distribution outperforms
the STFT and at an SNR of -5dB the RMS error is reduced
