# A theoretical analysis of one-dimensional discrete generation ensemble Kalman particle filters

@article{Moral2021ATA, title={A theoretical analysis of one-dimensional discrete generation ensemble Kalman particle filters}, author={Pierre Del Moral and Emma L. Horton}, journal={The Annals of Applied Probability}, year={2021} }

Despite the widespread usage of discrete generation Ensemble Kalman particle filtering methodology to solve nonlinear and high dimensional filtering and inverse problems, little is known about their mathematical foundations. As genetic-type particle filters (a.k.a. sequential Monte Carlo), this ensemble-type methodology can also be interpreted as mean-field particle approximations of the Kalman-Bucy filtering equation. In contrast with conventional mean-field type interacting particle methods…

A unifying framework is proposed that allows to systematically derive the McKean-Vlasov representations of these filters for the discrete time and continuous time observation case, taking inspiration from the smooth approximation of the data considered in Crisan & Xiong (2010) and Clark & Crisan (2005).

The original Ensemble Kalman Filter algorithm proposed by [1] as well as a recent variant [2] to the respective discretizations are applied and it is shown that in the limit of decreasing stepsize the filter equations converge to an ensemble of interacting (stochastic) differential equations in the ensemble-mean-square sense.
