A 'filtered' martingale problem is defined for the problem of estimating a process X from observations of Y, where (X,Y) is Markov. We give conditions on the generator of (X,Y) that imply that the conditional distribution is the unique solution to this filtered martingale problem. We apply this result to prove uniqueness of solutions of the Kushner-Stratonovich and Zakai equations of non-linear filtering. 

Stationary Solutions and Forward Equations for Controlled and Singular Martingale Problems

Stationary distributions of Markov processes can typically be characterized as probability measures that annihilate the generator in the sense that for ; that is, for each such , there exists a

On the Innovations Conjecture of Nonlinear Filtering with Dependent Data

We establish the innovations conjecture for a nonlinear filtering problem in which the signal to be estimated is conditioned by the observations. The approach uses only elementary stochastic

We consider the Zakai equation for the unnormalized conditional distribution $\sigma$ when the signal process $X$ takes values in a complete separable metric space $E$ and when $h$ is a continuous,

Abstract In the paper we study the Zakai and Kushner–Stratonovich equations of the nonlinear filtering problem for a non-Gaussian signal-observation system. Moreover, we prove that under some general

Nonlinear Filtering for Jump Diffusion Observations

We deal with the filtering problem of a general jump diffusion process, X, when the observation process, Y, is a correlated jump diffusion process having common jump times with X. In this setting, at

Martingale Problems for Conditional Distributions of Markov Processes

Let $X$ be a Markov process with generator $A$ and let $Y(t)=\gamma (X(t))$. The conditional distribution $\pi_t$ of $X(t)$ given $\sigma (Y(s):s\leq t)$ is characterized as a solution of a filtered

The filtered martingale problem

Let X be a Markov process characterized as the solution of a martingale problem with generator A, and let Y be a related observation process. The conditional distribution t of X(t) given observations
