Updated paper and package on resampling algorithms in LibBi

posted by Lawrence Murray on 08 May 2014

The following paper has been updated on arXiv, detailing the particle filter resampling schemes implemented in LibBi, including the Metropolis and rejection algorithms, which can provide an extra performance boost:

L. M. Murray, A. Lee, and P. E. Jacob. Parallel resampling in the particle filter, 2014.

A new Resampling package has also been added to the website. It can be used to reproduce the results of that paper using the test_resampler command that comes built into LibBi. At time of writing, the package requires the latest development version of LibBi from the GitHub repository (to be released soon as stable version 1.1.0).
