A Metric for Assessing the Degree of Device Nonlinearity and Improving Experimental Design



Dominique Schreurs, Catherine A. Remley, Dylan F. Williams


We propose a metric that quantifies the degree of nonlinearity of state-space trajectories. We use the metric to improve the selection of collections of measurements for the development of behavioral models. We illustrate the method with an off-the-shelf amplifier.
