abstract = {The authors derive a new class of finite-dimensional recursive filters for linear dynamical systems. The Kalman filter is a special case of their general filter. Apart from being of mathematical interest, these new finite-dimensional filters can be used with the expectation maximization (EM) algorithm to yield maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters of a linear dynamical system. Important advantages of their filter-based EM algorithm compared with the standard smoother-based EM algorithm include: 1) substantially reduced memory requirements, and 2) ease of parallel implementation on a multiprocessor system. The algorithm has applications in multisensor signal enhancement of speech signals and also econometric modeling},
