A nonlinear discrete-time system of the form \(x(k+1)=f(x(k))+w(k)\) with linear observations \(y(k)=Hx(k)+v(k)\) is considered. The estimate \(\widehat{x}(k) \) of the state \(x(k)\) is produced by the extended Kalman filter which consists of using the classical Kalman filter equations for the first-order approximation of the nonlinear system about the last estimate. The authors investigate the error \(e(k)=x(k)-\widehat{x}(k)\) and establish conditions for its boundedness for large \(k\).
