Provides students and practicing engineers with tools that can be used for the solution of parameter estimation problems. The emphasis is on chemical engineering applications and on systems described by nonlinear algebraic and ordinary differential equations. The Gauss Newton method is featured, but shortcut methods are also presented. Englezos (University of British Columbia) and Kalogerakis (Technical University of Crete) describe how to formulate and solve parameter estimation problems, compute the statistical properties of the parameters, perform model adequacy tests, and design experiments for parameter estimation or model discrimination. The CDROM contains Fortran programs for solving estimation problems.
