The concept of generalised frequency response functions (GFRFs), which were developed for nonlinear system identification and analysis, is extended to continuous spatio-temporal dynamical systems normally described by partial differential equations (PDEs). The paper provides the definitions and interpretation of spatio-temporal generalised frequency response functions for linear and nonlinear spatio-temporal systems based on an impulse response procedure. A new probing method is also developed to calculate the GFRFs. Both the Diffusion equation and Fisher’s equation are analysed to illustrate the new frequency domain methods.
