**Data Assimilation: A Mathematical Introduction**

by K.J.H. Law, A.M. Stuart, K.C. Zygalakis

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2015**ISBN-13**: 9783319203256**Number of pages**: 158

**Description**:

This book provides a systematic treatment of the mathematical underpinnings of work in data assimilation, covering both theoretical and computational approaches. Specifically the authors develop a unified mathematical framework in which a Bayesian formulation of the problem provides the bedrock for the derivation, development and analysis of algorithms; the many examples used in the text, together with the algorithms which are introduced and discussed, are all illustrated by the MATLAB software detailed in the book and made freely available online.
