    In this article, we propose a SMC based method for estimating the static parameter of a general state space model. The proposed method is based on maximizing the joint likelihood of the observation and unknown state sequence with respect to both the unknown parameters and the unknown state sequence. This in turn, casts the problem into simultaneous estimations of state and parameter. We show the efficacy of this method by numerical simulation results.
