.Model validation provides a useful means of assessing the ability of a model to account for a specific experimental observation, and has application to modeling, identification and fault detection. In this paper, we consider a new approach to the model validation problem by deploying quadratic functionals, and more generally nonlinear functionals, to specify noise and dynamical perturbation sets. Specifically, we consider a general linear fractional transformation framework for the model structure, and use constraints involving nonlinear functional inequalities to specify model non-linearities and unknown perturbations, and characteristics of noise and disturbance signals. Sufficient conditions for invalidation of such models are provided in terms of semidefinite programming problems
