Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 69)


In other contributions presented at this advanced study institute, several mathematical techniques of convolution or deconvolution of fluorescence decay data have been described and reviewed. In the following we will discuss the method of modulating functions in terms of its applicability and limitations.
