Estimation of unmeasured variables is a crucial objective in a broad range of applications. However, the estimation process turns into a challenging problem when the underlying model is nonlinear and even more so when additionally it exhibits multiple time scales. The existing results on estimation for systems with two time scales apply to a limited class of nonlinear plants and observers. We focus on analyzing nonlinear observers designed for the slow state variables of nonlinear singularly perturbed systems. Moreover, we consider the presence of bounded measurement noise in the system. We generalize current results by considering broader classes of plants and estimators to cover reduced-or..
