Abstract

Two applications of optimal inputs for parameter estimation are given in this chapter. The first application is for blood glucose regulation parameter estimation. The second application is for aircraft parameter estimation.

Keywords

Performance Index Blood Glucose Concentration Critical Length Fisher Information Matrix Terminal Time 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
