## Nonlinear System with Extended Dynamic Mode Decomposition

Similarly, we can use the Extended Dynamic Mode Decomposition via a nonlinear Basis of observables. Here, we will look at a rather famous example with a finite dimensional solution.

using DataDrivenDiffEq
using LinearAlgebra
using ModelingToolkit
using OrdinaryDiffEq
using Plots

function slow_manifold(du, u, p, t)
du = p * u
du = p * (u - u^2)
end

u0 = [3.0; -2.0]
tspan = (0.0, 5.0)
p = [-0.8; -0.7]

problem = ODEProblem(slow_manifold, u0, tspan, p)
solution = solve(problem, Tsit5(), saveat = 0.01) Since we are dealing with a continuous system in time, we define the associated DataDrivenProblem accordingly using the measured states X, their derivatives DX and the time t.

prob = ContinuousDataDrivenProblem(solution)
Continuous DataDrivenProblem{Float64}

Additionally, we need to define the Basis for our lifting, before we solve the problem in the lifted space.

@variables u[1:2]
Ψ = Basis([u; u^2], u)
res = solve(prob, Ψ, DMDPINV(), digits = 1)
system = result(res)

## Nonlinear Systems - Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics

To find the underlying system without any Algorithms related to Koopman operator theory, we can use Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics - SINDy for short. As the name suggests, it finds the sparsest basis of functions which build the observed trajectory. Again, we will start with a nonlinear system:

using DataDrivenDiffEq
using LinearAlgebra
using ModelingToolkit
using OrdinaryDiffEq
using Plots
using Random
using Symbolics: scalarize

Random.seed!(1111) # For the noise

# Create a nonlinear pendulum
function pendulum(u, p, t)
x = u
y = -9.81sin(u) - 0.3u^3 -3.0*cos(u) - 10.0*exp(-((t-5.0)/5.0)^2)
return [x;y]
end

u0 = [0.99π; -1.0]
tspan = (0.0, 15.0)
prob = ODEProblem(pendulum, u0, tspan)
sol = solve(prob, Tsit5(), saveat = 0.01)

# Create the data with additional noise
X = sol[:,:] + 0.1 .* randn(size(sol))
DX = similar(sol[:,:])

for (i, xi) in enumerate(eachcol(sol[:,:]))
DX[:,i] = pendulum(xi, [], sol.t[i])
end

ts = sol.t

To estimate the system, we first create a DataDrivenProblem via feeding in the measurement data. Using a Collocation method, it automatically provides the derivative. Control signals can be passed in as a function (u,p,t)->control or an array of measurements.

prob = ContinuousDataDrivenProblem(X, ts, GaussianKernel() ,
U = (u,p,t)->[exp(-((t-5.0)/5.0)^2)], p = ones(2)) Now we infer the system structure. First we define a Basis which collects all possible candidate terms. Since we want to use SINDy, we call solve with an Optimizer, in this case STLSQ which iterates different sparsity thresholds and returns a pareto optimal solution of the underlying sparse_regression!. Note that we include the control signal in the basis as an additional variable c.

@variables u[1:2] c[1:1]
@parameters w[1:2]
u = scalarize(u)
c = scalarize(c)
w = scalarize(w)

h = Num[sin.(w.*u);cos.(w.*u); polynomial_basis(u, 5); c]

basis = Basis(h, u, parameters = w, controls = c)

λs = exp10.(-10:0.1:-1)
opt = STLSQ(λs)
res = solve(prob, basis, opt, progress = false, denoise = false, normalize = false, maxiter = 5000)

Info

A more detailed description of the result can be printed via print(res, Val{true}), which also includes the discovered equations and parameter values.

Where the resulting DataDrivenSolution stores information about the inferred model and the parameters:

system = result(res);
params = parameters(res);
Model ##Basis#418 with 2 equations
States : u u
Parameters : 7
Independent variable: t
Equations
Differential(t)(u) = p₃*u
Differential(t)(u) = p₄*sin(u*w) + p₅*cos(u*w) + p₆*(u^3) + p₇*c
[1.0, 1.0, 1.0, -9.75, -3.03, -0.31, -10.01]

Since any system obtained via a solve command is a Basis and hence a subtype of an AbstractSystem defined in ModelingToolkit, we can simply simulate the result via:

infered_prob = ODEProblem(system, u0, tspan, parameters(res))
infered_solution = solve(infered_prob, Tsit5(), saveat = ts)
Warning

As of now, the control input is dropped in the simulation of a system. We are working on this and pull requests are welcome! As we can see above, the estimated system matches the ground truth reasonably well.
