Elliot et al. Hidden Markov Models: Estimation and Control

This book will be taught in a way which makes it an introduction to stochastic filtering.  The advantage of Hidden Markov Models is that they are easy to understand yet quite powerful because they are nonlinear.  Optimal filters will be derived using the reference probability method.
