Does the Kalman Filter boil down to Recursive (i.e., incremental) Least Squares if the state is constant?

I expect it does but I am not sure.

Assume that all simplifying assumptions hold (i.e, models are linear, pdfs are all Gaussian etc).

The Recursive Least Squares deals with Measurement Noise.

If you set the Process Noise to zero energy noise then both are equivalent.
