This paper reviews the major developments of modeling techniques applied
to nonlinear dynamics and chaos. Model representations, parameter
estimation techniques, data requirements, and model validation are some of
the key topics that are covered in this paper, which surveys slightly over two
decades since the pioneering papers on the subject appeared in the literature.
