A Unified Formulation of the State and Parameter Estimation Problem
- Derives data-assimilation methods using a top-down approach
- Presents unified data-assimilation formulation
- Derivation applicable to both state- and parameter estimation
- Provides a deep understanding of data-assimilation methods and their properties
This book summarizes about 75 years of the authors’ accumulated experience within the formulation, development, and practical use of advanced data-assimilation methods. We realize that no available texts discuss the multitude of data-assimilation methods and problems in a “unified” manner and with a unified notation. Thus, we believe this book will serve as an essential resource for anyone working or planning to work in data assimilation.
