Paper Abstract

The covariance matrix in Kalman filter is reduced using compactly supported orthonormal wavelet transform and is parameterized by only O(N) coefficients, where N is the dimension of the state vector. An approximate filtering algorithm, in which the covariances remain in such a transformed and compressed form throughout the time recursion, is designed. For estimation of space-time processes characteristic of geophysical flows, the proposed algorithm performs near optimally, while reducing computational and storage requirements of Kalman filter.
