This book has evolved from the highly successful behavioral modeling workshop, "Fundamentals of Nonlinear Behavioral Modeling: Foundations and Applications," that was organized by the editors and presented at the 2003 International Microwave Symposium. Each chapter of the book is an expanded and self-contained version of the respective workshop presentation. It has the following objectives: first, to present foundational material to the microwave community, from renowned experts in their own disciplines, to catalyze and cross-fertilize present behavioral modeling research in the RF and microwave arena; second, to show recent state-of-the-art applications of behavioral modeling to RF and microwave circuit and system designers. Chapter 2 presents an introduction to the theory of Volterra analysis and shows how it can be used for modeling RF and microwave systems. Chapter 3 describes a treatment of several envelop-domain behavioral models and their identification using a modified Volterra series methodology. This type of modeling approach takes into account the critical multiple time-scale coupled dynamics, generated by RF and microwave blocks simulated by complex signals, such as those used in modern communication systems. Chapter 4 offers mixed time-frequency domain methods for modeling and simulating long-term memory effects in RF and microwave nonlinear circuits and systems. Chapter 5 explains the "scattering functions" black-box frequency domain behavioral modeling technique. Scattering functions are a rigorous nonlinear generalization of (linear) S-parameters under the assumption of superposition for the harmonic components of the signal. Chapter 6 presents artificial neural networks (ANN) as a new tool for nonlinear behavioral modeling. Chapter 7 describes behavioral modeling from the perspective of nonlinear dynamics, which provides a theoretical foundation for a fundamentally nonlinear theory of black-box modeling in the time domain.
