Abstract : The report provides a complete and unified description of variations on the Wiener theory for modeling nonlinear systems. In particular, applications to the modeling of integrated circuit operational amplifiers in an ionizing radiation environment are considered. Detailed investigations of four modifications of the Wiener method are discussed here (Lee's method, the indirect method, Bose's method, and the matrix method), as well as extensions of the Wiener theory to include time varying and multiple-input multiple-output systems. It is shown that the matrix method is the best of the methods investigated. A modeling technique based upon this method is presented including a FORTRAN subprogram which can be used in conjunction with the SCEPTRE circuit analysis program for application as indicated above.
