Description |
With over 1.2 billion journeys a year taken on the London Underground, building an accurate model of the passenger distribution over the course of a day is an objective with obvious utility. A Gaussian-Poisson state space model is one option for such a model, but the likelihood function is analytically intractable and most approximation methods are computationally expensive. Using the method of moments to approximately fit the model is shown here to be effective without much computational expense. |
