Abstract : Procedures and results in nonlinear estimation are reviewed and critiqued. Both theory and applications are discussed. The theoretical work is concerned with least-squares parameter estimation and marginal maximum likelihood filtering and smoothing for discrete-time nonlinear dynamic systems. Application studies which are examined include 747 stability and control derivatives estimation from flight test data, estimation of human respiratory system parameters from test data, and Apollo orbit determination from tracking ship data.
