Cost function based on hidden Markov models for parameter estimation of chaotic systems
In this note, we deal with parameter estimation methods of chaotic systems. The parameter estimation of the chaotic systems has some significant issues due to their butterfly effects. It can be formulated as an optimization problem and needs a suitable cost function. In this paper, we propose a new cost function based on a hidden Markov model which is a statistical tool for modeling of time series data. It can model dynamical characteristics of the chaotic systems. Moreover, the use of dynamical features of their strange attractors is investigated to achieve a better cost function in the procedure of parameter estimation. Our experimental results indicate the success of the proposed cost function in the one-dimensional parameter estimation of a new four-dimensional chaotic system and Lorenz system as a well-known three-dimensional chaotic system.
