This library provides Kalman filtering and various related optimal and non-optimal filtering software written in Python. It contains Kalman filters, Extended Kalman filters, Unscented Kalman filters, Kalman smoothers, Least Squares filters, fading memory filters, g-h filters, discrete Bayes, and more. My aim is largely pedalogical - I opt for clear code that matches the equations in the relevant texts on a 1-to-1 basis, even when that has a performance cost. There are places where this tradeoff is unclear - for example, I find it somewhat clearer to write a small set of equations using linear algebra, but numpy's overhead on small matrices makes it run slower than writing each equation out by hand. Furthermore, books such Zarchan present the written out form, not the linear algebra form. It is hard for me to choose which presentation is 'clearer' - it depends on the audience. In that case I usually opt for the faster implementation.
