Abstract : The report describes various algorithms for calculating the modal trajectory estimate, the conditional mean state estimate and the weighted least squares trajectory estimate. These algorithms are suitable for implementation in a large class of parallel computers. The report also identifies a number of theoretical and computational questions where future research should be performed. (Author)
