An iterative method is proposed for the identification of nonlinear systems from samples of inputs and outputs in the presence of noise. The model used for the identification consists of a no-memory gain (of an assumed polynomial form) followed by a linear discrete system. The parameters of the pulse transfer function of the linear system and the coefficients of the polynomial non-linearity are alternately adjusted to minimize a mean square error criterion. Digital computer simulations are included to demonstrate the feasibility of the technique.
