This two-volume handbook presents a comprehensive
overview of nonlinear dynamic system identification. The books include
many aspects of nonlinear processes: modelling, parameter estimation, structure
search, nonlinearity and model validity tests. The book includes not only
nonparametric models but also parametric models which include a limited
number of parameters. Time domain parameter estimation is dealt with in
detail; frequency domain and power spectrum procedures are also included.
Audience: This work is intended for postgraduate students, researchers
and engineers whose work involves nonlinear systems. Many examples, case
studies and experimental identifications of real processes have been included.
