This book gives a global picture of the current state of identification, from the reasons for mathematical modelling, through the theoretical underpinning, to details of a wide range of well-tried identification algorithms and their application. The limitations of present techniques and the practical constraints on their use are explored and illustrated by numerical examples. Introductions to areas of current research are included in a chapter on specialised topics.
