H [infinity symbol]/H2/Kalman filtering of linear dynamical systems via variational techniques with
Filtering of linear dynamical systems has historically been accomplished through the application of the Kalman filter. The Kalman filter has a minimum mean squared error type performance for linear systems with stochastic inputs. In practice, the Kalman filter has been adapter for use with systems outside its usual solution set. For example, the extended Kalman filter for nonlinear systems. While the Kalman filter has been rather successful in general, practical applications have found that mode
