In this section, models of time-varying delays which are not linearly or quadratically time variant are briefly considered.
The time-varying range R(t) can be expanded in Taylor series, around t0, with Lagrange residual term:
where R(n)(·) denotes the nth-order derivative of R(·), and if t > t0 and if t < t0. This expression can be substituted into (c07-mdis-0044) to get an n-order algebric equation in D(t). One of the roots of this equation is the time-varying delay D(t) for the given R(t) (see Section 7.4 for the case n = 2 and ).
Alternatively, by following the approach in (Kelly 1961) and (Kelly and Wishner 1965), the time-varying delay D(t) can be expanded in Taylor series, around t0, with Lagrange residual term:
where if t > t0 and if t < t0.
