Abstract. MathBrain is a cloud-based application, distributed under Software as a Service model. This application provides access to several algorithms of the multichannel encephalography data analysis. Spectral methods include direct and inverse Fourier transforms and quantitative analysis. Statistical methods involve principal component analysis and independent component analysis. The field maps of elementary components can be used to solve the magnetic encephalography inverse problem and to display the result at the magnetic resonance image. The application is designed to be used in human brain studies without mathematical training.
Key words: cloud computing, magnetic encephalography, spectral analysis, independent component analysis, inverse problem solution.
