For k > 0, the following distributions exist: (Yt+k | Dt ) ∼ N[mt , Qt (k)], (a) k-step ahead: (Xt (k) | Dt ) ∼ N[kmt , Lt (k)], (b) k-step lead-time: where k Qt (k) = Ct + Wt+j + Vt+k j=1 and Lt (k) = k 2 Ct + k k Vt+j + j=1 j 2 Wt+k+1−j . j=1 Proof. From the evolution equation for µt and the observational equation for Yt , for k ≥ 1, k µt+k = µt + ωt+j , j=1 k Yt+k = µt + ωt+j + νt+k . j=1 Since all terms are normal and mutually independent, (Yt+k | Dt ) is normal and the mean and variance follow directly.

The mean and variance are obtained by adding means and variances of the summands, leading to (b): (µt | Dt−1 ) ∼ N[mt−1 , Rt ], where Rt = Ct−1 + Wt . Similarly, conditional upon Dt−1 , Yt is the sum of the independent normal quantities µt and νt and so is normal, leading to (c): (Yt | Dt−1 ) ∼ N[mt−1 , Qt ], where Qt = Rt + Vt . 36 2. Introduction to the DLM As mentioned above, (d) is derived twice, using two different techniques: (1) Updating via Bayes’ Theorem The Bayesian method is general, applying to all models, no matter what the distributional assumptions.

The mean m0 is a point estimate of this level, and the variance C0 measures the associated uncertainty. 2 The DLM and Recurrence Relationships 35 observations Yv , Yv−1 , . . , Y1 . Thus, the only new information becoming available at any time t is the observed value Yt , so that Dt = {Yt , Dt−1 }. 2 Updating equations The following theorem provides the key probability distributions necessary for effective forecasting, control, and learning. 1. 1 the one-step forecast and level posterior distributions for any time t > 0 can be obtained sequentially as follows: (a) Posterior for µt−1 : (b) Prior for µt : (µt−1 | Dt−1 ) ∼ N[mt−1 , Ct−1 ].
