### On the asymptotic variance in the central limit theorem for particle filters

Particle filter algorithms approximate a sequence of distributions by a sequence of empirical measures generated by a population of simulated particles. In the context of Hidden Markov Models (HMM), they provide approximations of the distribution of optimal filters associated to these models. For a given set of observations, the behaviour of particle filters, as the number of particles tends to infinity, is asymptotically Gaussian, and the asymptotic variance in the central limit theorem depends...
