Hi Everyone,

Patrick Rebeschini will talk about  how to tweak classical sequential 
Monte Carlo algorithms
(particle filters) to overcome the curse of dimensionality in high 
dimensional problems. He
will review the classical theory (bootstrap particle filter), analyze 
the curse of dimensionality,
and discuss what ideas are needed to address the core of the problem and 
to make tangible
progress in applications.

See you Friday at 11 in the Stat's classroom.
