Going with flow: transport methods in sequential Monte Carlo methods

Sequential state estimation in non-linear and non-Gaussian state spaces has a wide range of applications in signal processing and statistics. One of the most effective non-linear filtering approaches, particle filters a.k.a. sequential Monte Carlo methods, suffer from weight degeneracy in high-dimensional filtering scenarios. Several avenues have been pursued to address high dimensionality. Among these, particle flow filters migrate particles continuously from the prior distribution to the posterior distribution by solving partial differential equations. Approximations are needed in the implementation of all of these filters; as a result, the particles do not exactly match a sample drawn from the desired posterior distribution.


In this talk, I will present new filters which incorporate deterministic particle flows into an encompassing particle filter framework. The valuable theoretical guarantees concerning particle filter performance still apply, but we can exploit the attractive performance of the particle flow methods. The filters I will describe involve a computationally efficient weight update step, arising because the embedded particle flows we designed possess an invertible mapping property. I will demonstrate the advantage of the proposed particle flow particle filters through numerical simulations of a challenging multi-sensor multi-target tracking scenario.
