Backward representation of Markov jump processes and related problems. II. Optimal nonlinear estimation


Solutions of the problem of optimal nonlinear smoothing (interpolation) of the state of a special Markov jump process from indirect observations in Wiener noise were obtained. The optimal nonlinear estimates were examined and compared with the corresponding optimal linear estimates described in Part I.
