 If there is a group numbers from one to a certain number, and I miss one of them. Let's say we have 1 to 1000, but I only have 999 in my array, Find an approach to figure out what the number is. 1 Answer thinking about the complexity, the best way should be add them all, and compare to result of adding 1 to 1000, and the missing number should be the addition of 1 to 1000 minus the one you have in your array. However, as a teaching staff, we have to be open-minded, other approaches like sorting them, and compare the value to the key... should also be considered.

 What is Kalman filter? 1 Answer The Kalman filters are based on linear dynamic systems discretized in the time domain. They are modelled on a Markov chain built on linear operators perturbed by errors that may include Gaussian noise. The state of the system is represented as a vector of real numbers. At each discrete time increment, a linear operator is applied to the state to generate the new state, with some noise mixed in, and optionally some information from the controls on the system if they are known. Then, another linear operator mixed with more noise generates the observed outputs from the true ("hidden") state. The Kalman filter may be regarded as analogous to the hidden Markov model, with the key difference that the hidden state variables take values in a continuous space (as opposed to a discrete state space as in the hidden Markov model). There is a strong duality between the equations of the Kalman Filter and those of the hidden Markov model. A review of this and other models is given in Roweis and Ghahramani (1999)[11] and Hamilton (1994), Chapter 13.[12] In order to use the Kalman filter to estimate the internal state of a process given only a sequence of noisy observations, one must model the process in accordance with the framework of the Kalman filter. This means specifying the following matrices: Fk, the state-transition model; Hk, the observation model; Qk, the covariance of the process noise; Rk, the covariance of the observation noise; and sometimes Bk, the control-input model, for each time-step, k, as described below. Model underlying the Kalman filter. Squares represent matrices. Ellipses represent multivariate normal distributions (with the mean and covariance matrix enclosed). Unenclosed values are vectors. In the simple case, the various matrices are constant with time, and thus the subscripts are dropped, but the Kalman filter allows any of them to change each time step. The Kalman filter model assumes the true state at time k is evolved from the state at (k − 1) according to \mathbf{x}_{k} = \mathbf{F}_{k} \mathbf{x}_{k-1} + \mathbf{B}_{k} \mathbf{u}_{k} + \mathbf{w}_{k}
