Summary. We construct a sequence of branching particle systems with time and space dependent branching mechanisms whose expectation converges to the solution of the Zakai equation. This gives an alternative numerical method to solve the Filtering Problem.

The analogy between images and statistical mechanics systems is made and the analogous operation under the posterior distribution yields the maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimate of the image given the degraded observations, creating a highly parallel ``relaxation'' algorithm for MAP estimation.
