The author discusses the standard nonlinear filtering problem when a ‘small amount’ of noise is present in the observation process. This ‘small amount’ is modelled by \(\epsilon B_ t\), where B is a standard Brownian motion and \(\epsilon\) a positive parameter. Approximate finite dimensional filters are discussed and their asymptotic behaviour as \(\epsilon\to 0\) is described.
