Computational learning in dynamical systems

The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the theory and application of computational methods for inference in dynamical systems. More specifically, the computational methods we are referring to are sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) methods (particle filters and particle smoothers) for nonlinear state inference problems and expectation maximisation (EM) and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods for nonlinear system identification.
