On parameter estimation of hidden Markov processes
[ Abstract ]
We present a survey of several results devoted to parameter estimation of partially observed models. The hidden processes are Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process and Telegraph process. We describe the asymptotic behavior of the MLE and BE of the unknown parameters of hidden processes and special attention is paid to a new class of estimators called Multi-step MLE-processes, which have the same asymptotic properties as the MLE but can be calculated much easier than MLE.
