  2. 2. Stochastic model updating and model selection with application to structural dynamics

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Majid Khorsand Vakilzadeh; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Uncertainty quantification; Bayesian model updating; Bayesian model selection; stochastic simulation; Bootstrapping; Subspace system identification; Finite element model;

    Abstract : Uncertainty induced by our incomplete state of knowledge about engineering systems and their surrounding environment give rise to challenging problems in the process of building predictive models for the system behavior. One such challenge is the model selection problem, which arises due to the existence of invariably multiple candidate models with different mathematical forms to represent the system behavior, and so there is a need to assess their plausibility based on experimental data.

  3. 3. Improved pharmacometric model building techniques

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Radojka Savic; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Model building; Absorption model; Transit compartment model; Nonparametric method; Extended grid method; Semiparametric; Distribution transformation; Shrinkage; Model diagnostics;

    Abstract : Pharmacometric modelling is an increasingly used method for analysing the outcome from clinical trials in drug development. The model building process is complex and involves testing, evaluating and diagnosing a range of plausible models aiming to make an adequate inference from the observed data and predictions for future studies and therapy.

  4. 4. Graphical representations of Ising and Potts models Stochastic geometry of the quantum Ising model and the space-time Potts model

    University dissertation from Stockholm : US AB

    Author : Jakob Erik Björnberg; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum Ising model; Ising model; Potts model; random-cluster model; random-current representation; random-parity representation; differential inequality; phase transition; MATHEMATICS Algebra; geometry and mathematical analysis Discrete mathematics; MATEMATIK Algebra; geometri och analys Diskret matematik;

    Abstract : HTML clipboard Statistical physics seeks to explain macroscopic properties of matter in terms of microscopic interactions. Of particular interest is the phenomenon of phase transition: the sudden changes in macroscopic properties as external conditions are varied. READ MORE
