Modelling Dynamical Systems from Real-World Data

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 208)


This summary describes some of my work on construction of dynamical system models from data, as part of a larger project to identify nonlinear dynamics and distinguish it from noise. In the space available it is only possible to look briefly at a number of different ideas and applications. The reader is referred to the bibliography for fuller details.
