Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
a. Ordinary differential equation
b. Partial differential equation
c. Markov jump processes
d. Chemical Master Equation
2. Probability theory
3. Nonlinear optimization
4. Parameter inference
b. Maximum likelihood
5. Uncertainty analysis
a. Asymptotic methods
c. Profile likelihood
d. Bayesian analysis
The participants will develop several MATLAB programs for parameter estimation.
The participants will work in groups and present recent advances in the field. This will improve team working and presentation skills.
2) The participants can independently solve common parameter estimation problems for in dynamical systems.
3) The participants can analyze the uncertainty of parameter estimates using different methods.
4) The participants can present own results and critically evaluate them.
