This letter presents the development of novel iterated filters and smoothers that only require specification of the conditional moments of the dynamic and measurement models. This leads to generalisations of the iterated extended Kalman filter, the iterated extended Kalman smoother, the iterated posterior linearisation filter, and the iterated posterior linearisation smoother. The connections to the previous algorithms are clarified and a convergence analysis is provided. Furthermore, the merits of the proposed algorithms are demonstrated in simulations of the stochastic Ricker map where they are shown to have similar or superior performance to competing algorithms.
