MitosisStochasticDiffEq.jl - Filtering & Guiding for SDEs
Frank Schäfer

Stochastic differential equations (SDEs) arise naturally in many scientific and industrial disciplines, e.g., due to the interaction of a system with some environment. Inverse problems such as the inference of the model parameters of an SDE are of paramount importance. I describe the Backward Filtering Forward Guiding paradigm, capable of solving this task based on trajectories observed according to some observation scheme, suitable for neural SDEs, and scalable to high-dimensional systems.
