SLICOT Working Note 2000-4: July 2000.

This report summarizes the achievements and deliverables of the Task III.A of the NICONET Project. After a short description of the linear system identification problem and of the available subspace-based techniques to solve it, the numerical algorithms implemented in SLICOT Linear Systems Identification Toolbox - SLIDENT - are surveyed. The associated Fortran routines are then listed and their functional abilities are outlined. The developed interfaces to MATLAB or Scilab, as well as examples of use are presented. Comparisons with the available MATLAB codes are included, illustrating the efficiency and accuracy of the SLIDENT components.
