System Identification

Course type

Gives the fundamental theory of identification of dynamical systems, i.e. how to use measured input-output data to build mathematical models, typically in terms of differential or difference equations.


Every 2 years.

Current Information for Spring 2018

The course will start on February 14 2018. Send an email to me (Lennart.Ljung-at-liu.se) if you want to participate.
