- This report describes a nonlinear mapping technique where the unknown static or dynamic system is approximated by a sum of dimensionally increasing functions (one-dimensional curves, two-dimensional surfaces, etc.). These lower dimensional functions are synthesized from a set of multi-resolution basis functions, where the resolutions specify the level of details at which the nonlinear system is approximated. The basis functions also cause the parameter estimation step to become linear. This feature is taken advantage of to derive a systematic procedure to determine and eliminate basis functions that are less significant for the particular system under identification. The number of unknown parameters that must be estimated is thus reduced and compact models obtained. The lower dimensional functions (identified curves and surfaces) permit a kind of "visualization" into the complexity of the nonlinearity itself.
