No problem - the copyright agreement gives me the right to post it on my
website, so here it is:


The animation, all figures and all calculations were done in Python
(+Scilab+Pylab), but obviously this is not a programming paper and Python
is a research tool here (which I think is the goal of the creators of the
wonderful language and libraries). Unfortunately there is only code for
Matlab - just a few one-liners. In HRV (heart rate variability) research
most people use Matlab and hardly anyone even knows about Python. I am
trying to advertise Python, but the paper would not have been accepted with
code in Python. 

Of course the paper clearly says that the calculations were done in Python.
