CDS 270-1 -- Spring 2006
Linear systems and control, basic understanding of nonlinear dynamics,
Lyapunov stability theory, numerical methods, and MATLAB.
CDS 270-1. System Identification. Units 3-0-6.
The main goal of the course is to give a self-contained mathematical
treatment of System Identification (ID) theory and methods, with
applications to aerospace, robotics and biology. Throughout the course both off-line and
on-line system ID methods will be presented. Effectiveness of the design methodology will be demonstrated using MIMO static maps as well as dynamical systems in
continuous and discrete time domains. Simulation examples (using MATLAB) will be given
throughout the course. Students will be asked to run a course project (system ID
related) using models of their choice. A formal report documenting project results is due the week before the semester ends. In addition, each student will be required to
present his /her results in class, (last week of the semester).
