Closed-Form Prediction of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems by Means of Gaussian Mixture Approximation of the Transition Density

Huber, Marco; Brunn, Dietrich; Hanebeck, Uwe D.

Recursive prediction of the state of a nonlinear stochastic dynamic system cannot be efficiently performed in general, since the complexity of the probability density function characterizing the system state increases with every prediction step. Thus, representing the density in an exact closed-form manner is too complex or even impossible. So, an appropriate approximation of the density is required. Instead of directly approximating the predicted density, we propose the approximation of the transition density by means of Gaussian mixtures. We treat the approximation task as an optimization problem that is solved offline via progressive processing to bypass initialization problems and to achieve high quality approximations. Once having calculated the transition density approximation offline, prediction can be performed efficiently resulting in a closed-form density representation with constant complexity.
