### Kalman Filter - Optimal Way to Handle “Derived” Measurements?

Ie, if you have as state variables position (p) and velocity (v), and I make low-frequency measurements of p, this also indirectly gives me information about v (since it's the derivative of p). What ...

### How to do prediction using frequency domain data?

Both linear regression and Kalman filtering can be used to estimate and then predict from a time domain sequence of data (given some assumptions about the model behind the data). What methods, if ...

### How to estimate for an exponential in WGN

Question: Formulating a Maximum likelihood estimator: So, the likelihood will be $p(y;\mathbf{h}) = \frac{1}{{(2 \pi \sigma_\eta^2)}^{T/2}} \exp{(-(y - y_0(t))^2)/ 2\sigma_\eta^2}$. Then, I ...
