This article considers the problem of storing the paths generated by a particle filter and more generally by a sequential Monte Carlo algorithm. It provides a theoretical result bounding the expectedâ€¦ (More)

This work considers the deployment of pseudo-random number generators (PRNGs) on graphics processing units (GPUs), developing an approach based on the xorgens generator to rapidly produceâ€¦ (More)

We have applied an ensemble optimal interpolation (EnOI) data assimilation system to a high resolution coastal ocean model of south-east Tasmania, Australia. The region is characterised by a complexâ€¦ (More)

This work offers a broad perspective on probabilistic modeling and inference in light of recent advances in probabilistic programming, in which models are formally expressed in Turing-completeâ€¦ (More)
