Some new advances in the Volterra series based frequency domain theory or method developed in the past 10 years are summarized from a novel parametric characteristic approach. These results, including both theoretical investigation and practical application algorithms, would be able to present a solid and important basis for further development of frequency domain theories and methods for nonlinear analysis and design to solve critical engineering issues in the literature and engineering practices.
