ab: 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 isnâ€™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.
