Abstract:

The modelling of nonlinear and multidimensional systems from input andor output measurements is considered. Tensor concepts are used to reformulate old results and develop several new ones. These results are verified through non-trivial computer simulations. A generalized tensor formulation for the modelling of discrete-time stationary nonlinear systems is presented. Tensor equivalents of the normal equations are derived and several efficient methods for their solution are discussed. Conditions are established that ensure a diagonal correlation tensor so that a solution can be obtained directly without matrix inversion. Using a tensor formulation, a new proof of the Generalized Lattice Theory is obtained. Tensor extensions of the Levinson and Schur algorithms are presented. New two-dimensional lattice parameter models are derived. Using the tensor form of the Generalized Lattice Theory the 2-D multi-point error order-updates are decomposed into 0N2 single point updates. 2-D extensions of the Levinson and Schur algorithms are given. The quarter plane lattice is considered in detail, first in a general form, then in forms which reduce the computational complexity by assuming shift-invariance. Based on the 2-D lattice, a new nonlinear lattice model is developed. The model is capable of updates in the nonlinear as well as time order. Author
