Multilevel Particle Filters for the Non-Linear Filtering Problem in Continuous Time

JASRA A., YU F., HENG Jeremy

In the following article we consider the numerical approximation of the non-linear filter in continuous-time, where the observations and signal follow diffusion processes. Given access to high-frequency, but discrete-time observations, we resort to a first order time discretization of the non-linear filter, followed by an Euler discretization of the signal dynamics. In order to approximate the associated discretized non-linear filter, one can use a particle filter. Under assumptions, this can achieve a mean square error of (mathcal {O}(epsilon ^2)), for (epsilon >0) arbitrary, such that the associated cost is (mathcal {O}(epsilon ^{-4})). We prove, under assumptions, that the multilevel particle filter of Jasra et al. (SIAM J Numer Anal 55:3068–3096, 2017) can achieve a mean square error of (mathcal {O}(epsilon ^2)), for cost (mathcal {O}(epsilon ^{-3})). This is supported by numerical simulations in several examples. Lien vers l'article
