*S*^{2}_{f}partial derivative*S*^{2}_{s}partial derivative*τ*_{f}partial derivative*τ*_{s}partial derivative

Because of the equation
*S*^{2} = *S*^{2}_{f}⋅*S*^{2}_{s} and the form of the extended spectral density function (15.63) a convolution of the model-free space occurs if the model-free parameters {*S*^{2}_{f}, *S*^{2}_{s}, *τ*_{f}, *τ*_{s}} are optimised rather than the parameters {*S*^{2}, *S*^{2}_{f}, *τ*_{f}, *τ*_{s}}. This convolution increases the complexity of the gradient. For completeness the first partial derivatives are presented below.
