A bootstrap method is presented for finding efficient sum-of-poles approximations of causal functions. The method is based on a recursive application of the nonlinear least squares optimization scheme developed in (Alpert et al. in SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 37:1138–1164, 2000), followed by the balanced truncation method for model reduction in computational control theory as a final optimization step. The method is expected to be useful for a fairly large class of causal functions encountered in engineering and applied physics. The performance of the method and its application to computational physics are illustrated via several numerical examples.
