# data2state

Map past data to states of state-space and nonlinear ARX models

## Description

maps
the past data to the states of a state-space or a nonlinear ARX model `X`

= data2state(`sys`

,`PastData`

)`sys`

. `X`

contains
the state values at the time instant immediately after the most recent
data sample in `PastData`

. The software computes
the state estimates by minimizing the 1-step ahead prediction error
between predicted response and output signal in `PastData`

.

`data2state`

is useful for continued model
simulation. That is, suppose you have simulated a model up to a certain
time instant and would like to then simulate the model for future
inputs. Use `data2state`

to estimate states of
the model at the beginning of the second simulation.
