Abstract

A nonlinear operator approach to estimation in discrete-time systems is described. It involves inferential estimation of a signal which enters a communications channel involving both nonlinearities and transport delays. The measurements are assumed to be corrupted by a colored noise signal which is correlated with the signal to be estimated. The system model may also include a communications channel involving either static or dynamic nonlinearities. The signal channel is represented in a very general nonlinear operator form. The algorithm is relatively simple to derive and to implement.
