A Forward Monte Carlo Method for American Options Pricing: This study proposes a forward Monte Carlo method for the pricing of American options, and significantly improves in numerical efficiency and accuracy in contrast with the standard regression-based method of Longstaff and Schwartz(2001).

ReBEL : Recursive Bayesian Estimation Library and Toolkit for Matlab: I couldn't find a good R package for extended Kalman Filter parameter estimation, ReBEL is one for Matlab though. Please let me know if you know some R package. Three excellent papers to understand Kalman Filter in finance are:
1. Estimating and Testing Exponential-Affine Term Structure Models by Kalman Filter, 1999, Jin-Chuan Duan and Jean-Guy Simonato, REVIEW OF QUANTITATIVE FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING
2. Affine Term-Structure Models:Theory and Implementation, 2001, Bolder, David Jamieson, Bank of Canada Working Paper No. 2001-15
3. Non-Linear Kalman Filtering Techniques for Term-Structure Models, 1997, Jesper Lund, Working Paper

Exploiting Option Information in the Equity Market: Strategies based on several option measures predict returns and alphas on the underlying stock.
