• ### Rates of convergence in a central limit theorem for stochastic processes defined by differential equations with a small parameter

1992

Let μ be a positive finite Borel measure on the real line R. For t ≥ 0 let et · E1 and E2 denote, respectively, the linear spans in L2(R, μ) of {eisx, s > t} and {eisx, s < 0}. Let θ: R → C such that ∥θ∥ = 1, denote by αt(θ, μ) the angle between θ · et · E1 and E2. The problems considered here...

• ### Strong Convergence in the Stochastic Averaging Principle.

1994

In this note we consider the almost sure convergence (as ϵ→0) of solution Xϵ(·), defined over the interval 0 ≤ τ ≤ 1, of the random ordinary differential equation View the MathML source Here {F(x, t, ω), t ≥ 0} is a strong mixing process for each x and (x, t) → F(x, t, ω) is subject to regularity...

• ### A law of the iterated logarithm for stochastic processes defined by differential equations with a small parameter

1994

Consider the following random ordinary differential equation: X˙ϵ(τ)=F(Xϵ(τ),τ/ϵ,ω)subject toXϵ(0)=x0, where {F(x,t,ω),t≥0} are stochastic processes indexed by x in Rd, and the dependence on x is sufficiently regular to ensure that the equation has a unique solution Xϵ(τ,ω) over the interval...

• ### Strong approximation for cross-covariances of linear variables with long-range dependence.

1995

Suppose {εk, −∞ < k < ∞} is an independent, not necessarily identically distributed sequence of random variables, and {cj}∞j=0, {dj}∞j=0 are sequences of real numbers such that Σjc2j < ∞, Σjd2j < ∞. Then, under appropriate moment conditions on {εk, −∞ < k < ∞}, View the MathML source, View the...

• ### Averaging for Fundamental Solutions of Parabolic Equations.

1997

Herein, an averaging theory for the solutions to Cauchy initial value problems of arbitrary order,ε-dependent parabolic partial differential equations is developed. Indeed, by directly developing bounds between the derivatives of the fundamental solution to such an equation and derivatives of the...

• ### Invariance Principles for Parabolic Equations with Random Coefficients

1997

A general Hilbert-space-based stochastic averaging theory is brought forth herein for arbitrary-order parabolic equations with (possibly long range dependent) random coefficients. We use regularity conditions onView the MathML sourcewhich are slightly stronger than those required to prove...

• ### A novel branching particle method for tracking.

2000

Particle approximations are used to track a maneuvering signal given only a noisy, corrupted sequence of observations, as are encountered in target tracking and surveillance. The signal exhibits nonlinearities that preclude the optimal use of a Kalman filter. It obeys a stochastic differential...

• ### Practical applications of a branching particle-base filter.

2001

Particle-based nonlinear filters provide a mathematically optimal (in the limit) and sound method for solving a number of difficult filtering problems. However, there are a number of practical difficulties that can occur when applying particle-based filtering techniques to real world problems....

• ### Particle filters for combined state and parameter estimation.

2001

Filtering is a method of estimating the conditional probability distribution of a signal based upon a noisy, partial, corrupted sequence of observations of the signal. Particle filters are a method of filtering in which the conditional distribution of the signal state is approximated by the...

• ### Convergence of Markov chain approximations to stochastic reaction diffusion equations.

2002

In the context of simulating the transport of a chemical or bacterial contaminant through a moving sheet of water, we extend a well-established method of approximating reaction-diffusion equations with Markov chains by allowing convection, certain Poisson measure driving sources and a larger...
