Introduction to Optimal Estimation by E. W. Kamen PhD, J. K. Su PhD (auth.)

By E. W. Kamen PhD, J. K. Su PhD (auth.)

This ebook, built from a suite of lecture notes by way of Professor Kamen, and because elevated and subtle through either authors, is an introductory but entire research of its box. It comprises examples that use MATLAB® and plenty of of the issues mentioned require using MATLAB®. the first target is to supply scholars with an in depth assurance of Wiener and Kalman filtering besides the improvement of least squares estimation, greatest probability estimation and a posteriori estimation, according to discrete-time measurements. within the learn of those estimation recommendations there's powerful emphasis on how they interrelate and healthy jointly to shape a scientific improvement of optimum estimation. additionally integrated within the textual content is a bankruptcy on nonlinear filtering, concentrating on the prolonged Kalman clear out and a recently-developed nonlinear estimator in accordance with a block-form model of the Levenberg-Marquadt Algorithm.
