In this paper, we give a direct derivation of the Duncan–Mortensen–Zakai filtering equation, without assuming right continuity of the signal, nor its filtration, and without the usual finite energy condition. As a consequence, the Fujisaki–Kallianpur–Kunita equation is also derived. Our results...

This paper addresses the problem of detecting and tracking an unknown number of submarines in a body of water using a known number of moving sonobuoys. Indeed, we suppose there are N submarines collectively maneuvering as a weakly interacting stochastic dynamical system, where N is a random...

A general Hilbertspacebased stochastic averaging theory is brought forth herein for arbitraryorder 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 hybrid weighted/interacting particle filter, the selectively resampling particle (SERP) filter, is used to detect and track an unknown number of independent targets on a onedimensional \"racetrack\" domain. The targets evolve in a nonlinear manner. The observations model a sensor positioned...

Herein, an averaging theory for the solutions to Cauchy initial value problems of arbitrary order,εdependent 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...

Let ℓ be Lebesgue measure and X=(Xt,t≥0;Pμ) be a supercritical, superstable process corresponding to the operator −(−Δ)α/2u+βu−ηu2 on Rd with constants β,η>0 and α∈(0,2]. Put View the MathML source, which for each smallθ is an a.s. convergent complexvalued martingale with limit View the MathML...

Classification of data as true or fabricated has applications in fraud detection and verification of data samples. In this paper, we apply nonlinear filtering to a simplified frauddetection problem: classifying coin flip sequences as either real or faked. On the way, we propose a method for...

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...

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...

Partiallyobserved microstructure models, containing stochastic volatility, dynamic trading noise and short term inertia, are introduced to address the following questions: (1) Do the observed prices exhibit statistically signicant inertia? (2) Is stochastic volatility (SV) still evident in the...
