the meaning of the matrices and vectors (A = transition matrix, B control matrix, u control
vector ...).

define methods to retrieve the process noise and measurement noise that don't have any parameter.
Thus the user can only implement constant noises, not time-dependant noises when he implement
the interfaces (or use the default implementation, which are constant). Wouldn't it be more
general to add an integer parameter for the step number ? The default implementation would
ignore it and always return the same matrices, but users may want to have custom implementation
using the informatio of the current step.

I've just corrected most CheckStyle complaints. Can I commit the code? Work
can then continue form the checked-in version.
