    This paper addresses the problems of worst-case identification and model invalidation of systems subject to unknown initial conditions. While in principle these problems lead to non-convex Bilinear Matrix Inequalities (BMIs), we show that tractable convex relaxations are readily available. The potential of these techniques is illustrated by identifying and validating a subsystem of the macro-economy relating inflation and interest-rates.
