Summary: There is a magnificent mathematical gem missing from most numerical analysis curricula. A literature search of numerical analysis and mathematical modeling texts indicates its absence. What is missing from the numerical analysis toolbox and why isn't it there? The missing tool is the {\it Kalman filter}. The Kalman filter requires a modest knowledge of statistics. Is this why it is missing from the toolbox? Read and reach your own conclusion whether this piece of mathematics should be part of a numerical analysis or mathematical modeling curriculum.
