  author={Anugu Sumith Reddy and Amarjit Budhiraja and Amit Apte},
We consider nonlinear filters for diffusion processes when the observation and signal noises are small and of the same order. As the noise intensities approach zero, the nonlinear filter can be approximated by a certain variational problem that is closely related to Mortensen’s optimization problem(1968). This approximation result can be made precise through a certain Laplace asymptotic formula. In this work we study probabilities of deviations of true filtering estimates from that obtained by… Expand

Large deviations for the optimal filter of nonlinear dynamical systems driven by Lévy noise
Abstract In this paper, we focus on the asymptotic behavior of the optimal filter where both signal and observation processes are driven by Levy noises. Indeed, we study large deviations for the caseExpand
Nonlinear filtering and large deviations:a pde-control theoretic approach
We consider the asymptotic nonlinear filtering problem dx=f(x)dt + ϵ1/2 dw,dy=h(x) dt + ϵ dv and obtain limϵ→0 ϵ log q 2(x,t) = -W(x,t) for unnormalized conditional densities q 2(x,t) using PDEExpand

A variational representation for certain functionals of Brownian motion
In this paper we show that the variational representation - log Ee -f(W) = inf E{1/2∫ 0 1 ∥v s ∥ 2 ds + f(w + ∫ 0 v s ds)} holds, where W is a standard d-dimensional Brownian motion, f is any boundedExpand
Large deviations for optimal filtering with fractional Brownian motion
We establish large deviation estimates for the optimal filter where the observation process is corrupted by a fractional Brownian motion. The observation process is transformed to an equivalent modelExpand
The theory of robust non-linear filtering in Clark (1978) and Davis (1980), (1982) is used to evaluate the limiting conditional distribution of a diffusion, given an observation of a 'rare-event'Expand
