% function homomorphic_envelope = Homomorphic_Envelope_with_Hilbert(input_signal, sampling_frequency,lpf_frequency,figures)
% This function finds the homomorphic envelope of a signal, using the method

% S. E. Schmidt et al., ?Segmentation of heart sound recordings by a
% duration-dependent hidden Markov model.,? Physiol. Meas., vol. 31, no. 4,
% pp. 513?29, Apr. 2010.
% C. Gupta et al., ?Neural network classification of homomorphic segmented
% heart sounds,? Appl. Soft Comput., vol. 7, no. 1, pp. 286?297, Jan. 2007.

% homomorphic envelogram and self-organizing probabilistic model,? in
% Computers in Cardiology, 2005, pp. 957?960.

% In I. Rezek and S. Roberts, ?Envelope Extraction via Complex Homomorphic
% Filtering. Technical Report TR-98-9,? London, 1998, the researchers state
% that the singularity at 0 when using the natural logarithm (resulting in
% values of -inf) can be fixed by using a complex valued signal. They
% motivate the use of the Hilbert transform to find the analytic signal,
% which is a converstion of a real-valued signal to a complex-valued
% signal, which is unaffected by the singularity.
% A zero-phase low-pass Butterworth filter is used to extract the envelope.
% input_signal: the original signal (1D) signal
% samplingFrequency: the signal's sampling frequency (Hz)
% lpf_frequency: the frequency cut-off of the low-pass filter to be used in
% the envelope extraciton (Default = 8 Hz as in Schmidt's publication).
% figures: (optional) boolean variable dictating the display of a figure of
% both the original signal and the extracted envelope:
% homomorphic_envelope: The homomorphic envelope of the original
% signal (not normalised).

% Segmentation,? IEEE Trans. Biomed. Eng., In Press, 2015.
