Abstract: The lung has long been a favorite object of study for the quantitatively inclined because of the ease and accuracy with it can be probed. Gas pressures, flows and concentrations can be measured at the mouth with a temporal resolution that makes them enticing targets for the tools of signal processing, and leads to numerous opportunities for mathematical and computational modeling. These activities can be both intriguing to the electrical engineer and helpful to medicine.
