Hyperbolic chaotic sets are composed of a countable infinity of unstable periodic orbits (UPOs). Symbol dynamics reveals that any long chaotic segment can be approximated by a UPO, which is a periodic solution to an ideal model of the system. Treated as such, the harmonic balance method is applied to the long chaotic segments to identify model parameters. Ultimately, this becomes a frequency domain identification method applied to chaotic systems.
