A lower bound on the estimation error for markov processes

Ben Zion Bobrovsky, Moshe Zakai

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A lower bound on the minimal mean-square error in estimating nonlinear Markov processes is presented. The. bound holds for causal and uncausal flltering. The derivation is based on the Van Trees’ version of the Cramér-Rao inequality.
