As part of the model building process, parameter estimation is of great importance in view of accurate prediction making. Confidence limits on the predicted model output are largely determined by the parameter estimation accuracy that is reflected by its parameter estimation covariance matrix. In view of the accurate estimation of the Square Root model(More)
The problem of optimal experimental design (OED) for parameter estimation of non-linear dynamic systems is considered. It is shown how this problem can be formulated as a dynamic optimization (optimal control) problem where the performance index is usually a scalar function of the Fisher information matrix. Numerical solutions can be obtained using direct(More)
It is generally known that accurate model building, i.e., proper model structure selection and reliable parameter estimation, constitutes an essential matter in the field of predictive microbiology, in particular, when integrating these predictive models in food safety systems. In this context, Versyck et al. (1999) have introduced the methodology of(More)
