Time Series Analysis by State Space Methods

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the use of importance sampling for the estimation of parameters in Bayesian analysis for models of Part I and Part II. It first develops the analysis of the linear Gaussian state space model by constructing importance samples of additional parameters. It then shows how to combine these with Kalman filter and smoother outputs to obtain the estimates of state parameters required. A brief description is also given of the alternative simulation technique, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods.

Keywords:   importance sampling, Bayesian analysis, linear Gaussian state space model, Kalman filter, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods
