# Interpolation Problem for Periodically Correlated Stochastic Sequences with Missing Observations

### Abstract

The problem of mean square optimal estimation of linear functionals which depend on the unknown values of a periodically correlated stochastic sequence is considered. The estimates are based on observations of the sequence with a noise. Formulas for calculation the mean square errors and the spectral characteristics of the optimal estimates of functionals are derived in the case of spectral certainty, where spectral densities of the sequences are exactly known. Formulas that determine the least favorable spectral densities and the minimax spectral characteristics are proposed in the case of spectral uncertainty, where spectral densities of the sequences are not exactly known while some classes of admissible spectral densities are specified.### References
