Mathematical methods as such are excluded from patenting (see e.g. Art. 52(2) of the European Patent Convention). Yet, mathematical concepts can often be patented if they are subject to a specific technical implementation or used in specific technical applications, such as noise suppression, image recognition, image encoding, data transmission, encryption and digital signing, diagnostic systems, load optimization, sensing, process control, and signal conversion.
