### Abstract

Many real-world systems are naturally modeled as hybrid stochastic processes, i.e., stochastic processes that contain both discrete and continuous variables. Examples include speech recognition, target tracking, and monitoring of physical systems. The task is usually to perform probabilistic inference, i.e., infer the hidden state of the system given some noisy observations. For example, we can ask what is the probability that a certain word was pronounced given the readings of our microphone, what is the probability that a submarine is trying to surface given our sonar data, and what is the probability of a valve being open given our pressure and flow readings. Bayesian networks are
