Identification of Nonlinear State-Space Models by Deterministic Search

  • J. P. Norton

An economical technique for tracing the boundary of a two-dimensional cross section of the feasible parameter set for a model with bounded output error is described. It allows exploration of a boundary which is not piecewise linear and may not be convex. First a point on the boundary is found, then a line search is executed, adapting to local behavior of the boundary. Resolution may be traded against computational speed by choice of the search parameters.
