Part of the Advances in Simulation book series (ADVS.SIMULATION, volume 1)


In the paper beyond the exact solutions using system-theoretical formulations methods of estimations and approximations are treated. Attention is given to the importance of a-priori information as a supposition for the efficiency of these methods.

Especially the paper deals with examples important both for demonstration the method as for practice: The selection of measuring systems based on the approximation of the measuring errors caused by these systems: optimization and optimal filtering; estimation of the memory capacity necessary to store the information gained by measurement and of the channel-capacity.
