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

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

Similarity:

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...

### Fast leak detection and location of gas pipelines based on an adaptive particle filter

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Similarity:

Leak detection and location play an important role in the management of a pipeline system. Some model-based methods, such as those based on the extended Kalman filter (EKF) or based on the strong tracking filter (STF), have been presented to solve this problem. But these methods need the nonlinear pipeline model to be linearized. Unfortunately, linearized transformations are only reliable if error propagation can be well approximated by a linear function, and this condition does not...

### Central limit theorem for hitting times of functionals of Markov jump processes

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

Similarity:

A sample of i.i.d. continuous time Markov chains being defined, the sum over each component of a real function of the state is considered. For this functional, a central limit theorem for the first hitting time of a prescribed level is proved. The result extends the classical central limit theorem for order statistics. Various reliability models are presented as examples of applications.

### Local degeneracy of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

Similarity:

We study asymptotic behavior of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) procedures. Sometimes the performances of MCMC procedures are poor and there are great importance for the study of such behavior. In this paper we call degeneracy for a particular type of poor performances. We show some equivalent conditions for degeneracy. As an application, we consider the cumulative probit model. It is well known that the natural data augmentation (DA) procedure does not work well for this model and the...

### On convergence in distribution of the Markov chain generated by the filter kernel induced by a fully dominated Hidden Markov Model

Similarity:

Consider a Hidden Markov Model (HMM) such that both the state space and the observation space are complete, separable, metric spaces and for which both the transition probability function (tr.pr.f.) determining the hidden Markov chain of the HMM and the tr.pr.f. determining the observation sequence of the HMM have densities. Such HMMs are called fully dominated. In this paper we consider a subclass of fully dominated HMMs which we call regular. A fully dominated,...

### A nonasymptotic theorem for unnormalized Feynman–Kac particle models

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

Similarity:

We present a nonasymptotic theorem for interacting particle approximations of unnormalized Feynman–Kac models. We provide an original stochastic analysis-based on Feynman–Kac semigroup techniques combined with recently developed coalescent tree-based functional representations of particle block distributions. We present some regularity conditions under which the -relative error of these weighted particle measures grows linearly with respect to the time horizon yielding what seems to...

### Nonlinear filtering for Markov systems with delayed observations

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Similarity:

This paper deals with nonlinear filtering problems with delays, i.e., we consider a system (X,Y), which can be represented by means of a system (X,Ŷ), in the sense that Yt = Ŷa(t), where a(t) is a delayed time transformation. We start with X being a Markov process, and then study Markovian systems, not necessarily diffusive, with correlated noises. The interest is focused on the existence of explicit representations of the corresponding filters as functionals depending on the observed...

### A note on spider walks

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

Similarity:

Spider walks are systems of interacting particles. The particles move independently as long as their movements do not violate some given rules describing the relative position of the particles; moves that violate the rules are not realized. The goal of this paper is to study qualitative properties, as recurrence, transience, ergodicity, and positive rate of escape of these Markov processes.
